Sources have told Guardian Media that doctors have so far discounted any major cardiac problem with Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.

Dr Rowley underwent several tests by the doctors at the Westshore Hospital and despite their findings, are keeping him under observation for the night.

The prime minister went to the hospital with chest pains around 5 pm today.

Meanwhile, the Office of the Prime Minister has issued a statement saying the prime minister is in good spirits.

“I wish to advise that Dr the Honourable Keith Rowley, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago had some discomfort this afternoon and as a precautionary measure he decided to seek medical attention and have a check-up.

At this time, we are pleased to advise that the Prime Minister is in good spirits.

Out of an abundance of caution, he will be kept for observation and further tests will be conducted.”
