German foreign minister cuts trip short after positive COVID test

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock is canceling a trip to Pakistan after testing positive for the coronavirus, her ministry reported on Tuesday.

According to the ministry, Baerbock, who met with her Pakistani counterpart earlier Tuesday in Islamabad, has canceled the remaining dates of the trip, which also included trips in Greece and Turkey.

According to the ministry, she tested positive after lunch after noticing that she had lost her sense of taste. It was also said that a quick antigen test she had had in the morning had been negative.

When she will return to Germany is unknown.
