PNCR and Opposition Leader Robert Corbin was flown out of Guyana Monday morning on an Air Ambulance for treatment at Long Island Hospital. The Opposition Leader complained of feeling unwell early Saturday morning. He was admitted to the Woodlands Hospital that morning. Arrangements were then made to transfer him to Caribbean Heart Institute at the Public Hospital Georgetown. Doctors both in Guyana and abroad are treating Corbin for a heart condition.
The main opposition party the PNCR put out a statement late Saturday afternoon after word began to spread about the condition of the Party Leader. The General Secretary of the PNCR Oscar Clarke indicated at that time that Corbin’s condition was being evaluated and the public would be informed of any developments.
The Party Leader’s brother Charles Corbin told this newscast that Robert Corbin was still conscious and was under sedation. He was moved from the Caribbean heart Institute before the crack of dawn to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport but did not actually leave Guyana until 10:37 Monday morning for the Long Island hospital with a stop in San Juan Puerto Rico. Corbin’s wife Carole accompanied him on the Air Ambulance.
The air ambulance expenses are being covered by the State as the Opposition Leader’s office is a Constitutional one.
