A Namibian Police officer based at Wanaheda Police Station in Windhoek has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The Namibian Police’s chief spokesperson, deputy commissioner Kauna Shikwambi, confirmed this on Wednesday. She said the police station would not be closed unless that is advised by health experts.
She said the officer had already been in isolation before his coronavirus test result came back as positive on Tuesday.
“So far the colleagues who shared an office are in isolation and all heath Covid-19 measures are being implemented, including disinfecting of the premises,” Shikwambi said.
“The pandemic indeed affects us all and thus we need to prioritise the health precautions as stipulated,” she said.
Wanaheda Police Station serves the communities of the Wanaheda, Havana, Greenwell Matango, Goreangab, Soweto and Hakahana areas in Windhoek.
