Acting Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw gave Barbadians the update this evening.
Mottley announced on Thursday she was following the advice of doctors and would undergo an undisclosed medical procedure over the weekend.
“The Prime Minister is now resting comfortably and has asked that a sentiment of gratitude be conveyed to all who have lifted her up in their prayers, called or sent messages of support or well wishes,” Bradshaw said.
She added, that Mottley’s sole wish is for the country to unite in its effort to control the spread of COVID-19.
Barbados has 26 confirmed cases.
