Namibia has reported 15 new Covid-19 positive cases, all of which are from Walvis Bay, health minister Kalumbi Shangula announced on Friday evening.
This brings the total cases to 350, with 25 recoveries, the minister said.
Shangula, in a statement, said 13 are females and two are males. The youngest is four years old and the oldest is 51 years old.
“Twelve had symptoms consistent with Covid-19 at the time of specimen collection. Four were identified through active case search,” he said.
The minister added that they are all in stable condition and contact tracing is ongoing.
“During the morning update, I erroneously indicated that only one case was from Windhoek. In fact, there are two cases from Windhoek and not one. The second case is that of a patient who was referred from Walvis Bay to Windhoek,” the minister noted.
