FORMER Cabinet minister and FIFA vice-president Jack Warner is still in quarantine at the Couva Hospital.
“But he is doing well,” his communications manager Michelle Borde-Harvey said on Tuesday. “All I can say is he is okay. He is recovering nicely.”
But she said Warner is in constant communication with his employees and his family.
Last Thursday a post on Warner’s Facebook page confirmed he had tested positive for covid19 after he fought and lost the Lopinot/BonAir West seat in the August 10 general election.
Warner, 77, was reportedly first taken to a private hospital earlier in the week with cardiac-related complaints, treated and sent home. He was taken back to the private hospital a few days later, when he tested positive.
Warner is the second politician to have contracted covid19, which has claimed the lives of 38 people to date in TT.
His former colleague in the Kamla Persad-Bissessar Cabinet, Dr Tim Gopeesingh, also contracted the disease. He is out of quarantine and also recovering. He has not answered calls to his cell phone.
In his last FB post on August 30, Gopeesingh expressed his gratitude to his family, friends, colleagues, patients and well-wishers who offered prayers and get-well wishes.
Gopeesingh said he was significantly improved and at home in quarantine in accordance with public health requirements.
Sporting and political organisations have sent good wishes to Warner and Gopeesingh.
