Progressive Liberal Party Senator Dr. Michael Darville confirmed today that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
This comes one day after PLP Leader Philip Brave Davis confirmed he tested positive for COVID-19 and was in hospital.
“Today I wish to advise the public that I have tested positive for COVID-19,” Dr. Darville said in a statement.
“I would like to express my gratitude to the nurses and doctors at Doctors Hospital whose care I am currently in.
“I also wish to extend my sincere appreciation for the overwhelming support I’ve received from the Bahamian people.
“As a doctor myself, I must now take the advice I give to virtually all my patients and get some much needed rest.”
Sources close to Davis confirmed that he was in the intensive care unit (ICU) at Doctors Hospital and was receiving oxygen.
The night before, Davis said both he and Dr. Darville were in hospital under examination.
