A farm worker who left St Vincent and the Grenadines for Canada was found unresponsive at a hotel in Mississauga, Ontario on Thursday (April 29). 

Police in Canada say they have launched an investigation to find out how 23-year-old Romario Morgan died. 

Morgan was part of a group of Caribbean farmworkers who recently travelled to Canada and had to quarantine at a hotel for fourteen-days,  in accordance with the country’s COVID-19 prevention protocols. 

The group’s quarantine period  is  set to end today (April 30).

The batch of seasonal farmworkers left St. Vincent and the Grenadines on April 9 and spent a week in St. Lucia, after which they arrived in Canada.
