Dr Kalumbi Shangula; Health minister; “We are expected to practice social distancing, to wash our hands and to sanitize.”

The minister of health Dr Kalumbi Shangula announced 19 new Covid-19 positive cases and 160 recoveries. Of the 458 results received from the laboratories, 14 are male and five are female, with ages varying from 8 to 65-years-old.

The confirmed cases are from Oshakati (8), Windhoek (6) and Onandjokwe (5).
The minister also clarified measures related to travel.

“Entry into Namibia is open for Namibian citizens, permanent residence permit holders and people domiciled in Namibia. Foreign nationals may enter Namibia for business, educational, health and tourism purposes, subject to public health measures. Non-Namibians are required to present on entry a negative SARS-COV-2 PCR test result that is not older than seven days. All persons entering Namibia, with the exception of tourists, are subject to a 7-day quarantine at own cost unless exempted.”

The minister stated that repetition is the mother of learning.

“Despite the state of emergency coming to an end, we are expected to practice social distancing, to wash our hands and to sanitize. The wearing of masks in public places remains mandatory. The number of people present at any public gathering remains 50.”

Shangula commended some churches who, despite the fact that the number of people at a public gathering was revised from 10 to 50, voluntarily elected to remain at 10 persons per gathering.

“This is commendable and demonstrates a high degree of responsibility.”

He also announced 160 new recoveries in Khomas (63), Ohangwena (40), Hardap (33), Erongo (19), //Kharas (4) and Omaheke (1) regions.

Of the active cases, seven are in a serious or critical condition. In the Erongo region, one patient is in a critical condition, while in Khomas, six are in a critical condition.
