China delays start of sensitive WHO mission

10:16 p.m.: Bureaucratic hurdles are delaying the start of the World Health Organization (WHO) mission in China to find out more about the origin of the coronavirus. WHO leader Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said to journalists on Tuesday that he was"very disappointed" that the Chinese authorities hadn't yet issued all of the necessary licenses to enable the international group of experts to research on site.

"Now we learned that the Chinese authorities still have not completed the necessary permits for the group to arrive in China," said Tedros. He was"very disappointed with this news" since two team members had already begun their travel, though other specialists could not leave"at the last minute".

He'd made it clear to"high-ranking Chinese officials" the assignment was a"priority for WHO" along with the worldwide investigation team, said Tedrossaid He had been assured that China would"accelerate" the internal processes for the earliest possible beginning of the mission.
