The World Health Organization needs more information to assess the latest surge in infections in China, Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
COVID-19 infections have risen across China this month after Beijing dismantled its zero-COVID policies including regular PCR testing on its population.
The United States, South Korea, India, Italy, Japan and Taiwan have all imposed COVID-19 tests for travelers from China in response.
“In order to make a comprehensive risk assessment of the COVID-19 situation on the ground in #China, WHO needs more detailed information,” Tedros said in a tweet late on Thursday.
