Namibia has recorded 54 new coronavirus infections and ten recoveries from the virus, health and social services minister Kalumbi Shangula said on Sunday.

Thirty-four of the newly confirmed infections were recorded in Windhoek, while five were detected at Okahandja, three at Otjiwarongo, two each at Oshakati, Rundu, Mariental and Karasburg, and one each at Onandjokwe, Eenhana, Walvis Bay and Rehoboth.

“The number of new cases is consistently decreasing, but we should interpret this with caution as it is too early to make a conclusive statement,” Shangula said. “However, this should give us courage and we should remain optimistic that there might be light at the end of the tunnel.”

The ten recoveries were recorded in the Hardap region (five), Omusati (two), Zambezi (two) and Omaheke (one).

The country has so far recorded 11 626 confirmed coronavirus infections and 123 deaths linked to Covid-19. With 9 429 recoveries from the virus, Namibia still has 2 074 active infections at the moment.
