Coronavirus forces postponement of COP26 meeting in Glasgow

A key climate summit in Glasgow will be delayed until next year due to disruption caused by the coronavirus.

The announcement was made in a joint statement from the UK and UN after a "virtual" meeting of officials.

Dozens of world leaders were due to attend the COP26 gathering that was set to run in Glasgow from November 9 this year.

It is expected that the conference will now take place by the middle of next year.

As the article points out, the conference centre that was to host it is about the be turned into a temporary hospital. I hope they still won't need that in November, but who knows? And I suppose there would have been lots of pre-summit meetings this summer.
