Barbados PM test positive for COVID-19

By: Staff Reporter, SKNVibes.com

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - THE reality that COVID-19 is still a force to be reckoned with in the region is hitting home as two regional leaders came down positive for the virus in recent days. 
     
    Barbados Prime Minister, Mia Mottley is the latest to return a positive COVID-19 test, and she is  said to be resting. 

     

    A statement from the Office of the Prime Minister confirmed that result several days after she met with representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Barbados.
     
    Mottley is said to be fully vaccinated and would now go on a period of recovery, while Deputy Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw would function in the capacity during her time away from work.
     
    It was just recently that St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves was also tested positive for COVID-19. 

     

    The Office of the Prime Minister in Kingstown on Thursday (Jun. 16) confirmed the positive case and indicated that he would likely not be able to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kagali, Rwanda.
     
    According to reports out of Kingstown, the 75-year-old Prime Minister is said to be functioning well despite the positive result.
     
    He is not the first government official to test positive. 

     

    A senator within his ranks had tested positive, while eight other Members of Parliament had also tested positive earlier this year during that country’s Budget Debates.
     
    UIn the broader region, a number of regional leaders have returned positive results for COVID-19, including Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda and Trinidad and Tobag’s Dr. Keith Rowley.
