HEALTH minister Kalumbi Shangula this evening in a live interview with NBC confirmed the country’s eighth coronavirus disease (Covid-19) case.
Shangula said the eighth confirmed case is a local transmission from the third confirmed case a German national.
The minister said they have two further suspected cases, which are not confirmed. The first is a truck driver, who traversed several countries before coming to Namibia and second is a contact.
“A specimen has been taken and sent to the laboratory for investigation whether it is a confirmed case or not. When the results come they will be released to the public as well,” the minister said.
