Antigua’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, has tested positive for COVID-19, although he said he was fully vaccinated.
Speaking on his radio programme, he said that he was feeling fine.
“I’m doing fine. I’m taking decongestants but other than that, I think I’m doing well,” he said.
He stated that in the type of job he has, he is always exposed to the virus.
“So, the job is such [that] I’m always exposed, which is why I took the opportunity to get vaccinated quickly. Other than this, I’m in good health. My oxygen levels [are] fine. I’m feeling well; I don’t have any loss of appetite, no loss of taste. No fever. No headaches. So, I’m doing good,” said Browne.
COVID-19 has been blamed for 135 deaths and 7,511 infections in Antigua.
Browne called on all Antiguans to get vaccinated in order to protect themselves from the virus.
