Case number 33 is a 35-year-old Namibian resident with South African citizenship who returned to Namibia on 12 June. He traveled to Windhoek from South Africa.

He is asymptomatic and his condition is stable.

Case number 34 is a 39-year old Namibian female from Walvis Bay who came in contact with her colleague (case number 32) at the Walvis Bay Correctional Facility.

This is another local transmission according to the minister.

Namibia this morning reported a new recovery of Covid-19 – case number 28.

This brings the total number of recoveries to 18.

Case number 22 is still in the intensive care unit, but continues to make progress and is fully awake.

Speaking at the Covid-19 communication centre this morning, Shangula said two Namibian truckers, who had been travelling from Gobabis, tested positive for Covid-19 in Botswana.

They were returned to Namibia. 

Both are in isolation at Gobabis and in a satisfactory condition. 

“They are however regarded as Botswana cases,” the minister said

    Amazingly he was allowed to roam about Windhoek at will for two days. He should be held accountable for this, since it seems that the authorities are not willing to take the responsibility to keep us safe. In any other country, heads would roll. Please explain, somebody?
