Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says Carnival 2021 will not happen, unless there is a major change with regard to the ongoing pandemic.
He reportedly made that declaration today as he spoke during an event called “Spotlight on the Economy”.
Dr Rowley said it would be “madness” to even be talking about Carnival given the current global situation.
Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, which also hosts a world famous Carnival, has already cancelled its event for 2021.
Dr Rowley also warned that the 2020/2021 Budget will seek to stablize the country beyond the pandemic.
