WTO staff member tests positive for Covid-19
In Geneva, the World Trade Organization has suspended all meetings until 20th March after a staff member was tested positive for Covid-19.
The move was announced by the Director-General Roberto Azevedo.
He says the organization takes the safety of staff and its members very seriously which is why he’s taken this unprecedented step.
He adds the situation will be kept under review.
The WTO has set up a coronavirus task force to react to the changing situation.
