Environment minister misses first days of COP27 due to Covid

Environment minister Duarte Cordeiro has not travelled with Portugal’s prime minister to COP27 in Egypt because he has tested positive for Covid-19. As the nation’s media points out there is no rule any longer requiring people to ‘self isolate’ if/ when infected. But Mr Cordeiro has decided to “work from home” and fly to Egypt to represent Portugal towards the end of the event. COP27 runs until November 18.
