Giroir alluded to a resolution passed Tuesday by the WHO's assembly calling on Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to launch a "comprehensive evaluation" of the WHO-coordinated global response to the outbreak "at the earliest appropriate moment".
A listing of 106,000 fresh COVID-19 diseases was reported around the world on Tuesday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared, together with two-thirds of fresh cases observed in only four nations.
The latest move comes days after President Donald Trump threatened of permanently stopping funding to the WHO.
Elsewhere at the briefing, Dr. Mike Ryan, head of WHO's emergencies program, said the "tragic milestone of 5 million cases" would soon be hit. And the pandemic is still unfolding.
Tedros Ghebreyesus pointed out that we still have a long way to go until the end of the pandemic.
The first COVID-19 cases emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan last December. "So, this is in the WHO's DNA", said Tedros.
U.S. President Donald Trump, who has accused the agency of being "China centric", threatened in a tweeted letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Monday to permanently halt funding if the World Health Organization did not commit to improvements within 30 days, and to reconsider his country's membership of the agency.
More than 325,000 people have lost their lives, according to the AFP tally.
First drafted by the European Union, it was first initially proposed by 100 World Health Organization member states, including China, while the USA abstained.
"There was a lot of support and vote of confidence and on the letter, we have of course received the letter and we're looking into it, thank you so much".
"This review will ensure we have a complete and transparent understanding of the source, timeline of events, and decision-making process for the WHO's response to the COVID-19 pandemic", wrote Giroir, who is one of the board's 34 global members.
Asked Wednesday when that might be, Tedros said: "When all the conditions we need are actually met". The US President has said he is taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent coronavirus infection despite studies showing they have no benefit and could have unsafe side effects.
And Brazil's health ministry recommended Wednesday using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat even mild cases of COVID-19 - treatments President Jair Bolsonaro has pushed for despite the lack of conclusive evidence of their effectiveness. In contrast, CGTN has been unable to find a single credible figure from the scientific community who believes COVID-19 was artificially created. Some 3,000 patients are taking part in the trials in 320 hospitals across 17 countries.
