A World Health Organization official said Friday that the group had no evidence to support a claim by a White House economic adviser of lack of transparency by China over the coronavirus outbreak and called on countries to “avoid politicizing this issue right now.”

Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO health emergencies program, was responding to comments by Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, who said the U.S. feels let down by China’s response to the virus.

“We are a little disappointed that we haven’t been invited in and we’re a little disappointed in the lack of transparency coming from the Chinese,” Kudlow told reporters Thursday.

Ryan called the remarks “opinion” and noted that he expects U.S. experts to be part of the WHO team in Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus. He added that there has long been “deep scientific collaboration” between the U.S., international organizations and China, including extensive publishing by China in international medical journals about the virus.
