India's Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar has tweeted that he and others in the Indian delegation to the London G7 foreign ministers' summit are self-isolating as it emerged some of the diplomats in attendance had tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Jaishankar tweeted: "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 stated that it was 'very unfortunate' that the Indian FM could not attend, but that "This is exactly why we have put in place strict Covid protocols and daily testing." Yesterday Jaishankar met UK Home Secretary Priti Patel, although due to COVID-19 protocols being observed she is not being asked to self-isolate.
  • Ned Price, spokesman for the US delegation to London said there was no reason to expect any of the US team is at risk of exposure.
  • India remains in a state of extreme distress, with a huge wave of COVID-19 infections, hospitalisations, and deaths overwhelming health services in many states across the country.
