Wednesday's G7 meeting in London has been rocked by a Covid-19 scare after two members of the Indian delegation tested positive.
The country's entire team is now self-isolating, but will still try to attend meetings of the group virtually.
Senior government sources have confirmed reports of the outbreak.
It is understood Public Health England first picked up the two positive cases late last night.
The Indian delegation had been due to attend a key meeting at Lancaster House, in the heart of London, this morning.
A senior British diplomat said: “We deeply regret that Foreign Minister Jaishankar will be unable to attend the meeting today in person but will now attend virtually.
"But this is exactly why we have put in place strict Covid protocols and daily testing."
Dr Jaishankar said: "Was made aware yesterday evening of exposure to possible Covid positive cases.
"As a measure of abundant caution and also out of consideration for others, I decided to conduct my engagements in the virtual mode.
"That will be the case with the G7 Meeting today as well."
