St. George’s, Grenada, W.I.  - Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr. Keith Mitchell (pictured) - has announced the cancellation of the Spicemas carnival 2021 celebrations.

Mitchell said there will be no carnival, even if 60 per cent of the population get the COVID-19 vaccine.

This will be the second consecutive year Spicemas has been cancelled due to the pandemic.

Grenada’s immunisation rollout began on February 12 and health officials are working towards having 60 per cent of the island’s population of 110,000 vaccinated.

“I don’t see how we will be able to achieve 60 per cent by July, but even if we did, I think it will be a mistake to go and have a mass event. Because you will still have 40 per cent of the people who will not have been vaccinated. I don’t think it is a smart thing,” Mitchell said during an interview with selected journalists.
