Private Sector Commission (PSC) Chairman, Captain Gerry Gouveia has been tested positive for COVID-19.

In a Facebook post, minutes ago, businessman Captain Gerry Gouveia said that in preparation for his travel to Barbados for the funeral of the late former Prime Minster, Owen Arthur, he was required to take a COVID-19 test.

“Unfortunately, the test has returned a POSITIVE result. I am asymptomatic as I have none of the symtoms associated with the virus. However, I am now in self isolation/quarantine and will be for the next seven days, pending another test. I regret that, especially as the Barbados Honorary Consul in Guyana, I am now unable to attend the funeral of this outstanding son of the Caribbean,” the Captain said.

He assured that he is following all the protocols required of Covid-19 victims and he looks forward to a full and speedy recovery.

“I have already advised many of those with whom I have been in contact in recent days, to get tested as well. I take this opportunity to thank all those well wishers who have already been in touch with me,” he said.
