Nikkei reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga indicated to the press this morning that Japan will submit to the ongoing World Health Assembly a joint resolution with the EU seeking an inquiry into the WHO’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. “It is important to launch a fair and independent evaluation,” he was quoted as saying. “The origin of the virus, initial responses, infection routes, and other aspects must be fully examined.” The government spokesperson reportedly expressed “regret” that Taiwan was unable to participate in the videoconference as an observer, adding: “A geographical vacuum should not be created when addressing issues of international public health.”
