(Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley is said to be “holding his own” after testing positive for COVID-19 yesterday.
Rowley experienced flu-like symptoms on Monday and was subsequently tested for COVID-19, with the test coming back positive.
Yesterday, Rowley was said to be in isolation and under medical supervision at an undisclosed location in Tobago.
The PM’s positive COVID test came on the day when the long-awaited national vaccine rollout began, when Rowley himself was initially scheduled to be vaccinated.
Yesterday, however, Rowley assured Guardian Media that none of his Cabinet Ministers had been exposed to the virus, at least not by him.
“I have not been in the presence of any Minister for the last two weeks,” Rowley told Guardian Media in response to questions about other Cabinet ministers possibly being exposed.
