The new cases are distributed across five towns, with Walvis Bay recording the highest number of new infections, 106 cases, Swakopmund five cases, Windhoek seven cases, and Keetmanshoop and Katima Mulilo one case each.

Health minister Kalumbi Shangula said all cases recorded today are Namibians – 86 being male and 34 female. They are all in a stable condition and contact tracing has been initiated, Shangula said.

All of the Windhoek cases come from different suburbs: Ludwigsdorf, Auasblick, Otjomuise, Khomasdal, Cimbebasia, Goreangab and Havana.

Only one case from Windhoek has been in quarantine, while another was admitted at a local hospital for non-Covid-19 reasons.

Another case from Windhoek has no travel history and was tested because he planned to travel.

Namibia has now recorded a total of 1 522 novel coronavirus infections, with seven deaths and 69 recoveries.

Active contacts are now 1 998, Shangula said.
