The British government are holding G7 meeting’s this week in London and according to Sky News two of the Indian delegation have tested positive for Covid.

This is the first time in more than two years Foreign Ministers have met in person for the G7 meeting, and India was also invited to London this week.

On Tuesday the Home Secretary Priti Patel met with India’s Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar to sign a new UK/India immigration agreement, but he has not tested positive.

He wrote on Twitter, “Was made aware yesterday evening of exposure to possible Covid positive cases.

“As a measure of abundant caution and also out of consideration for others, I decided to conduct my engagements in the virtual mode.

“That will be the case with the G7 Meeting today as well.”

A senior UK diplomat said, “We deeply regret that Dr Jaishankar will be unable to attend the meeting today in person but will now attend virtually, but this is exactly why we have put in place strict COVID protocols and daily testing.”
