Walvis Bay

The minister of health and social services Dr Kalumbi Shangula announced that Namibia recorded five more positive Covid-19 cases.

The most recent Covid-19 positive cases were all recorded in Walvis Bay and are all contacts of Case 32 and Case 34.

The minister said that Case 41 is a Namibian female (10) from Walvis Bay.

“She is the daughter and a contact of Case 34. She has been in quarantine since she was identified as a contact. She does not have COVID-19 related symptoms.”

Case 42 is a Namibian male (40), from Walvis Bay.

“He is a contact of Case 34. He also has no COVID-19 related symptoms,” said Shangula.

Case 43 is a Namibian female (38), from Walvis Bay.

“She is a contact of both Case 32 and Case 34. She had been in quarantine since she was identified as a contact.”

Case 44 is a Namibian male (36) from Walvis Bay.

“He is a contact of Case 34. He had been in quarantine since he was identified as a contact. He does not have COVID-19 related symptoms.”

Case 45 is a Namibian female (28) from Walvis Bay.

“She is a contact of Case No 34. She has been in quarantine since she was identified as a contact. She has runny nose but otherwise she is in a satisfactory condition.”

The minister explained that Case 32 infected Case 34, who then infected Cases 41, 42, 43,44, and 45.

“This is a cluster transmission in a close setting. These cases are a clear demonstration that our strategy of contact identification and isolation is bearing fruit. The number of these case should therefore not cause panic and alarm,” the minister cautioned

The status of Covid-19 in Namibian is now as follows:
Confirmed Cases: 45
