People’s National Party (PNP) candidate for South Eastern St. Andrew, Julian Robinson has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a release sent out by the party on Friday, it was explained that initially Robinson was advised by the Ministry of Health and Welness that he had tested negative.
“After briefly experiencing some signs of tiredness, out of an abundance of caution, I did a Covid 19 test. I was first informed by the authorities that my results were negative,” read a release sent out by Robinson who also serves as the party’s General Secretary.
“The Ministry of Health later advised me that the earlier information provided to me was incorrect. In those circumstances, I decided to do another test and the results have come back positive,” added Robinson.
According to Robinson, since experiencing symptoms, I have avoided contact with the Party’s campaign leadership and stopped direct campaign activities in my constituency.
He further said that he was “now in self isolation at home in accordance with the MOH protocols” noting further that he would not take part physically in the rest of the General Election campaign.
