Coronavirus: China says it “strictly enforces” COVID-19 rules after 2 WHO experts denied Wuhan entry

China said on Thursday that it "strictly enforces" COVID-19 prevention measures after two members of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) international team of experts were held back in Singapore after testing positive for coronavirus antibodies.

The WHO-led team arrived in Wuhan from Singapore on Thursday to investigate the origins of COVID-19, and were expected to head into two weeks of quarantine.

The team of 15 had all tested negative for the disease prior to leaving their home countries, and underwent further testing while in transit in Singapore. The results of nucleic acid tests were negative but showed two of the members had coronavirus antibodies, the Geneva-based agency said in a tweet.

"China will strictly enforce the relevant epidemic prevention and control requirements and regulations," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in response to a question about the two team members.
