The Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Keith Rowley, has declared carnival a ‘no go’ for 2021.
Dr. Rowley, who was speaking at the Spotlight on the Economy forum, said that unless there is a dramatic change by Christmas, the carnival is ‘not on’.
“I see no future for Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in the months ahead…unless there’s some dramatic change in the wind that will blow across us by Christmas, Carnival is not on,” Dr. Rowley declared
The Prime Minister said hosting a carnival amid the coronavirus pandemic would be madness.
The twin-island republic has seen 4,362 confirmed coronavirus cases and 71 related deaths.
