The 2022 Budget debate in St Vincent and the Grenadines has hit a snag as Finance Minister Camillo Gonsalves and Minister of Urban Development Julian Francis have tested positive for COVID-19.
This now brings to four the number of government ministers who have tested positive for COVID, which also include Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar and Minister of Education Curtis King.
The finance minister and urban development minister both tested positive this morning on the rapid test as they were preparing to go to the House of Assembly.
A rapid test is required before one enters the Parliament given the spread of omicron and other variants.
