Namibia has recorded 39 new coronavirus infections and 38 recoveries from the virus, health ministry executive director Ben Nangombe said on Wednesday.

Fourteen of the newly confirmed infections were recorded in Windhoek, 11 at Rehoboth, six at Lüderitz, three at Oshakati, two at Walvis Bay and one each at Oshikuku, Otjiwarongo and Gobabis.

Nangombe said the Windhoek district infections include three pupils from different schools. He added that there is no obvious clustering of cases.

The Rehoboth cases, he said, are related to a funeral where positive cases were reported earlier.

Khomas recorded 12 recoveries from the virus, Otjozondjupa 10, Hardap and Ohangwena five each, and Erongo and //Karas three each.

The total number of active confirmed coronavirus infections in Namibia currently stands at 1 417. Three of the active cases in the Khomas region are in a severe or critical condition.

Namibia has so far recorded 13 292 confirmed novel coronavirus infections, 134 deaths linked to Covid-19 and 11 739 recoveries from the virus.
