The British Government is organizing from October 31 to November 12, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland, the United Nations Climate Conference (COP26) in partnership with Italy. Negotiations that will take place in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
To prevent this conference from becoming a hotbed of new cases of contamination, the British Government has adopted several measures.
In an interview with DESKNATURE.COM and ACTUALITE.CD, the Ambassador of the United Kingdom in the DRC, Ms. Emily Maltman, explained that everything was reviewed because it is very important for participants to negotiate face-to-face.
“We looked at this issue before deciding how to organize the conference. In fact, for this kind of negotiations it is important to be together in person, all the delegations of the governments of the world and the other stakeholders. To ensure everyone’s health, there will be a testing system for everyone and every day before participating or before completing their quarantine period. There will be a lot of measures that will be put in place ”, Ms. Emily Maltman explained.
As part of this major climate conference, the British Government has also made Astrazeneca vaccines available to participants, in particular journalists.
For the past ten days, the United Kingdom has been facing a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases. The country recorded more than 50,000 new Thursday, a first since mid-July, according to government figures. Some 45,000 positive tests were added to it on Saturday 23 October.
