Those who have the infection are now in isolation – and 45 other members of the group are in quarantine. 

It’s hoped the meeting between different Syrian factions will be able to agree to a new constitution for the war-torn country.

The different sides traveled to Geneva separately and have no direct contact.

The full committee is 150 strong and divided into three main groups – including the government, opposition and civil society.

The civil war has killed 380,000 and displaced 11 million.
