GENEVA - The head of the World Health Organization said Wednesday the agency is "concerned about the risk to life in China" amid the coronavirus' explosive spread across the country and the lack of outbreak data from the Chinese government.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the agency recently met with Chinese officials to underline the importance of sharing more details about COVID-19 issues including hospitalization rates and genetic sequences, even as the pandemic continues to recede globally since it began in late 2019.

"Data remains essential for WHO to carry out regular, rapid and robust risk assessments of the global situation," Tedros said at a press briefing.
