Grenada: Grenada Prime Minister Grenada Dr Keith Mitchell has declared that all staff at quarantine facilities for incoming passengers will soon have to be vaccinated, as part of the government’s plan to guard citizens against a community outbreak of deadly coronavirus.

He made the revelation in a national speech on Wednesday, as he requested citizens generally to get immunized.

“A few brief months ago, we saw how rapidly the case numbers increased when employees at one hotel contracted the disease,” Prime Minister Mitchell said, referring to last December’s unexpected spike in COVID-19 cases that started at Sandals Grenada.

“With deadlier variants of the coronavirus now in circulation around the world, we must take all the essential measures to protect our people, but at the same time, allow them to sustain their livelihoods. I, therefore, assist everyone who meets the qualification criteria to get vaccinated.”
Since Grenada began its immunization programme, larger than 10,000 citizens have taken the first shot of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine. Dr Mitchell stated the government has thousands more jabs in stock.

“Despite the heavy global demand for coronavirus vaccines, Government has obtained 23,000 jabs of AstraZeneca – a good start as we seek to vaccinate at least 60 % of the adult population,” PM said.

“I urge you to guard yourself, protect your loved ones, protect your neighbours, protect your country. We are all in this collectively; therefore, we must all work together to safeguard our people, our country, our future.”

Grenada currently has no active cases of coronavirus. One person is in isolation, and more than 300 inbound passengers from regional including international destinations are in quarantine.

After the first case was diagnosed in March 2020, Grenada has reported a total of 155 cases, one of which resulted in death.

The whole world is frustrated with this current coronavirus situation, and the government is trying to protect people.
