Setback for EU-UK trade talks after negotiator tests positive for COVID-19

One of the members of the EU/UK Task Force Team has tested positive for COVID19, both David Frost and Michel Barnier decided to suspend the negotiations at their level for a short period of time.

However, European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen also said that teams will continue their work in observance of the COVID-19 health guidance.

Both sides remain 'hopeful' a deal is still within reach. However, it has been reported that European Leaders are pressuring the EU to publish 'No-Deal' guidance as there are growing fears that discussions may still fail or, if a deal is reached, there will not be enough time to rectify it before the end of the year.
