Cable news channel GloboNews reported that G20 leaders had requested a videoconference with Brazil’s newly-appointed Health Minister Nelson Teich on Sunday. The meeting was called by Saudi Arabia, where this year’s summit was supposed to happen — before the Covid-19 outbreak forced the group to meet online. It will be Mr. Teich’s first opportunity to represent Brazil as Health Minister.
