India’s entire delegation to a G7 foreign ministers’ meeting in London goes into self-isolation after two members tested positive for COVID-19, a British government official said on Wednesday.

The official added that this was in line with pre-established protocols, which included daily testing for all attendees.

“Two delegates tested positive so the entire delegation is now self-isolating,” he said. “

The meeting had been enabled by a strict set of Covid protocols, including daily testing of all delegates.”

Reportedly, the delegation will be attempting to attend meetings virtually.

India is not a G7 member but was invited by Britain to this week’s summit, along with Australia, South Africa, and South Korea.

According to a news source, the Indian delegation was given diplomatic exemptions to quarantine rules on arrival to the UK.

Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar did not test positive for the virus, Sky News reporter Joe Pike said on Twitter.

Jaishankar was pictured meeting British interior minister Priti Patel on Tuesday.
