The UN follows protocol. As per protocol The United Nations Security Council agenda is decided by the chair. Its a rotating presidency and the chair for the current period is China. As the chair, China has decided that there is no need for a discussion on the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
The Coronavirus is a virus that can cause death to humans which originated from China. This virus has been exported all around the world. China claims that it has neutralized the spread of the virus and that everything is going fine. There are hardly any new cases of the virus infecting humans being recorded by China.
China has chosen to not make the Coronavirus part of the agenda at the UNSC meeting. They say that the pandemic does not fall under the correct umbrella. However back in 2014 when the EBOLA outbreak occurred. The UNSC called it an 'unprecedented crisis' which constituted a threat to international peace and security.
