Tobago's Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development has said the Prime Minister was given a CT scan on Wednesday evening and not an MRI, as was reported in an earlier statement from the Office of the Prime Minister.
In a WhatsApp message, the division’s senior communications officer Rion George said: “The CT scan was done by staff in full PPE following departmental protocol for (covid19) patients, and the area was immediately sanitised.”
Dr Rowley was diagnosed with covid19 on Tuesday after developing flu-like symptoms on Monday.
He has since been receiving medical attention at his official residence in Blenheim, Tobago.
The OPM said on Wednesday Rowley had an “MRI examination to monitor his lung functions.”
It said the PM had since returned to quarantine in Blenheim where he continues to be monitored and cared for by staff of the Tobago Regional Health Authority.
He is expected to chair today’s meeting of the Cabinet.
