Indian Delegation G7 Summit in Isolation After Positive Corona Tests

Two members of the Indian delegation at the G7 summit in London have tested positive for the coronavirus. The entire delegation is in isolation, according to the British government.


Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar will attend Wednesday’s meetings digitally.

Jaishankar has not tested positive for the coronavirus itself, according to Sky News. The British say they regret that he cannot attend the meetings in person. The follow-up steps after the positive tests are, according to the authorities, in line with the strict protocols that have been drawn up for the summit. It states, among other things, that all attendees are tested daily.

The three-day G7 summit started on Monday. It is the first time in two years that the foreign ministers of the G7 countries are meeting physically. India does not belong to one of those countries, but, like Australia, South Africa and South Korea, is present at the invitation of the British.

India has been struggling with a heavy second corona wave since last month. Air traffic with India is limited due to the United Kingdom, among others, due to the many infections and concerns about an Indian variant of the coronavirus.
