Minister of health and social services Kalumbi Shangula says Namibia has three new Covid-19 cases.
Case number 37 is a Namibian man from Walvis Bay, case number 38 is a Namibian student who arrived from England and case number 39 is a 55 year-old Namibian female from Swakopmund.
Case 37 is a 20-year-old man who is a resident of Walvis, but a pupil at Mariental. According to health ministry spokesperson Manga Libita, the case was tested in the Hardap region and thus became that region’s cases.
This means Namibia has now recorded a total of 39 cases, with 20 active cases. Altogether 6 200 samples have been tested, with 900 contacts identified.
