Robert “Bobby” Pickersgill hospitalized following COVID-19 test

Former Transport Minister Robert Pickersgill is now a patient at the University Hospital of  the West Indies after reportedly testing positive for COVID-19.
Radio Jamaica News has been informed that Mr. Pickersgill became ill and was taken to a private facility.
He was transferred to the University Hospital yesterday.

Pickersgill, who served as Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change in the People's National Party Administration up to 2016,  was also the St Catherine North Western Member of Parliament from 1989 to 2020.

He earned the title  “seven-star general“ before bowing out of politics, opening the door for former PNP councillor Hugh Graham, who succeeded him in the recent general election.
