Health minister Kalumbi Shangula says Namibia has recorded four new cases of Covid-19.

Case number 64 is a 71-year male lorry driver who arrived from South Africa and traveled to Oshikango.

He is in a satisfactory condition.

Case 65 is a 65-year-old man from Kuisebmond, Walvis Bay, and a contact of case 35.

Case 66 is a 50-year-old woman, also from Kuisebmond and a contact of case 35.

The last new confirmed infection, case 67, is a 51-year-old woman, also from Kuisebmond, whose contacts are unknown and was part of an active case search.

Namibia now has 67 confirmed Covid-19 cases, with 21 recoveries and 46 active cases.

A total of 7 483 samples have been tested, with 152 tested yesterday, Shangula said.

“I would like to remind that the entire Namibia is still under stage 3, with the exception of Walvis Bay, Arandis and Swakopmund. Only on Monday will 13 regions, with the exception of Erongo region, transit to stage 4 for 10 weeks. Namibia is not yet in stage 4 until then,” he said.

He further said that Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Arandis residents are supposed to remain in that area and not travel.
