Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley is said to be still working since testing Covid-19 positive, including in his capacity as the sitting Chair of CARICOM.
In its second update since announcing the news of his diagnosis on Tuesday, the Office of the Prime Minister said Dr. Rowley remains in isolation and under the supervision of medical personnel in Tobago, at an undisclosed location.
“Dr Rowley’s vital signs are all stable and he remains in good spirits. The Prime Minister and his family wish to thank all those who have expressed “get well-wishes” and continue to pray for his wellbeing,” the release stated.
The Prime Minister, also functioning in his role as Chairman of CARICOM, is expected to continue talks with US Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services via a conference call this afternoon.
Dr. Rowley was confirmed positive for the virus on Monday evening, after being tested as he began experiencing flu-like symptoms.
He was due to receive his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Tuesday at the Scarborough Health Centre, but will now have to wait at least six months to be inoculated, in keeping with the advice from the World Health Organization.
