The meeting will request affected countries to provide their views and updates, and seek the advice of Committee members and advisors on recent developments and appropriate recommendations.
The consultations will be held by electronic means and are expected to close next week.
WHO expects to release the conclusions of the seventh Emergency Committee to the media in a statement after closure of the meeting. (If there are any changes to this estimated time or the arrangements, we will notify journalists via an update to this WHO Media Advisory distributed through the WHO global media list.).
