- Story Text: Exiled Tibetan activists assembled at the local office of World Health Organization (WHO) in New Delhi on Tuesday (July 14), demanding China be held accountable for the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
The activists reached WHO office on Tuesday morning and submitted a memorandum to the global agency on China's handling of the coronavirus outbreak, which emerged late last year in the Chinese city of Wuhan and has grown into a global pandemic.
Sporting t-shirts, caps, and masks with anti-China slogans, they also demanded replacing the current investigating official in China with an honest official who would "impartially investigate the causes and lapses in the spread of coronavirus."
More than 13.14 million people have been reported to be infected by the novel coronavirus globally and 23,727 have died in India.
Infections have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019.
