At lunch she suddenly couldn’t taste anything anymore. After a positive rapid corona test shortly after the start of her visit to Pakistan, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock canceled all other appointments. This was announced by the spokesman for the Federal Foreign Office, Christofer Burger, on Tuesday on the sidelines of the trip to the Pakistani capital Islamabad.

Originally, the Green politician wanted to travel to Greece and Turkey after her visit to Pakistan, which was planned until Wednesday.

Burger said that after Baerbock realized that she could no longer taste anything while eating, she immediately did a rapid corona test. This was positive.

There was a positive corona case in her family on Saturday. But she had little contact with him and has been consistently testing herself ever since. A quick test was still negative on Tuesday morning. “All other appointments are now canceled,” said the spokesman.
