U.S. Special Envoy on Climate John Kerry tested positive for COVID-19 on what was to be his last day at the COP27 summit in Egypt, where climate discussions have already been stalled.

Former Senator and Secretary of State Kerry’s illness could further hinder what has already been reported as little progress made in negotiations at the United Nation’s conference on climate change.

“He is fully vaccinated and boosted and experiencing mild symptoms. He is working with his negotiations team and foreign counterparts by phone to ensure a successful outcome of COP27,” State Department spokesperson Whitney Smith wrote in a statement about Kerry’s status as of Friday night.

COP27 has gathered climate change stakeholders from around the world, including activists, experts and diplomats like Kerry, in attempts to collectively address the climate change crisis.
