In addition, the organization reported that China informed it of finding the virus in imported food packages, and that it is carrying out tests in this matter, even if that included dozens of packages.
WHO expert Dr. Maria Vankirkov said at a press conference this evening in Geneva that cooking food kills the virus in all cases, according to what was reported by “WAM” agency.
Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the emergency program of the organization urged not to be terrified upon hearing this and to reassure everyone and take only hygiene measures.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the world needs 100 billion dollars in order to develop the technology and treatments necessary to eradicate the virus, and mentioned that there are nine vaccines in the trial phase and fall within the Kovacs Global Facility.
