Fighting the pandemic with prayer

Neville Andre; Erongo regional governor; “I would like to announce to the residents of the Erongo region, to set aside Sunday, 26 July, as a day of prayer.”
Erongo governor Neville Andre announced on Friday that a prayer day will be held in the region tomorrow.
This is being done to seek divine intervention in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic which has wreaked havoc in the region.
Andre called on residents and Namibians at large to go on their knees at 15:00 and pray for the protection and welfare of the people of the region and entire country.
“Following on the national day of prayer announced by president Hage Geingob earlier in April, I would like to request that the residents of the region set aside Sunday, 26 July, as a day of prayer. All churches should also ring their bells at exactly three o’clock on Sunday.”
The governor also said that he will join church leaders through a Skype prayer event which can be followed on different social media platforms.
He urged residents to keep adhering to lockdown regulations saying that doing so is key to restoring normality in the region after a difficult period brought along by the pandemic.
“As we now approach the peak of infections, we need to take extra precautions and tighten existing measure to slow down the rate of transmission. We will get through these challenging times,” he said.
The Erongo region and especially Walvis Bay has become the country’s epicentre of Covid-19 infections and deaths continuing to plague the harbour town.
