“Infection was detected in at least 5 employees of the delegation of one of the countries. On Tuesday, all meetings that required personal attendance were canceled,” the newspaper DW notes.
Recall that at the end of September, the UN General Assembly held its first meeting online. Only one diplomat from 193 countries was allowed, and the heads of state spoke online.
Most of the events were held virtually. Only one representative from each of the 193 participating countries was allowed to enter the General Assembly hall. The meeting in the hall was held in compliance with the social distance and mask mode. There were no handshakes or hugs during the week of the General Assembly.
