Members of the Indian delegation, which arrived in London for a three-day G7 face-to-face meeting, tested positive for the coronavirus, AMPE reported.
Sources of the publication claim that the infected guests from India have not yet met with other participants in the event, so there is no threat of infection. Currently, the Indian Foreign Minister and the rest of the delegation are isolated, although so far only two have tested positive.
India, who arrived at the summit as a guest, was scheduled to attend meetings yesterday, Tuesday, and all day today. Abramyanj Jaisankar, Minister of Foreign Affairs of India, tweeted:
“I was informed last night about possible positive cases of Covid. As a precaution and thinking about others, I decided to make an appointment over the internet. So it will be with today’s meetings. “
The meeting taking place in London will prepare the June G7 summit, which will be attended by world leaders, including US President Joe Biden. A British official confirmed 2 positive tests from guests from India and said British regulations require a 10-day isolation period.
