Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Leader Philip Brave Davis, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, was airlifted to the United States for treatment yesterday.
“As many of you know, my daughter Philippa is a very senior doctor in the United States,” Davis, 69, said in a statement.
“She would like me to be close by as I complete my treatment.
“After a family discussion, I have decided to fly to a hospital in the United States. I wish to thank the doctors and nurses and all the support staff at Doctors Hospital, who have looked after me so well.
“I am in close contact with colleagues and friends and will continue to monitor what is happening in our country.
“I pray God’s continued blessings on us all. I miss you all and look forward to being with you again soon.”
PLP Senator Dr. Michael Darville also confirmed earlier this week that he tested positive for COVID-19 and was hospitalized.
Central and South Eleuthera MP Hank Johnson confirmed yesterday he, too, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is hospitalized on New Providence.
