G-7 meeting replaced with teleconference due to coronavirus

President Donald Trump has replaced the planned in-person gathering of G-7 world leaders at Camp David with a videoconference because of the coronavirus pandemic, the White House announced on Thursday.
“In order for each country to focus all of its resources on responding to the health and economic challenges of COVID-19 and at President Trump’s direction,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement, “National Economic Council Director and U.S. Sherpa for the 2020 G7 Larry Kudlow has informed his Sherpa colleagues that the G7 Leaders’ Summit the U.S. was set to host in June at Camp David will now be done by video-teleconference.”
