German FM’s Visit to Athens Postponed after She Tests Positive for Covid-19

ATHENS – Germany’s foreign minister, Annalena Baerbock, has cut short her visit to Pakistan and postponed planned visits to Athens and Ankara after she tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday. Baerbock was due in Athens on Thursday, followed by her trip to Turkey on Friday.

According to a statement by German foreign ministry spokesperson Christopher Burger in Islamabad, Baerbock took a test, which came out positive, after realising that she had lost her sense of taste and smell during an official lunch.

One of her family members had tested positive for the virus at the weekend but there had been minimal contact between them. According to DW, a rapid antigen test she took in the morning had been negative.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
