President Hage Geingob this afternoon announced that the country will continue to stage 3 of its Covid-19 restrictions, while Walvis Bay will go back to a more restrictive stage 1.
He said the country will have stage 3 for a period of 28 days from Tuesday next week, while Walvis Bay, where the country’s two most recent coronavirus infections were detected, will revert back to stage 1.
Geingob said this at an update on Namibia’s steps to combat the Covid-19 pandemic at State House today.
The president praised Namibians and health workers for their fight against the pandemic, and said he was happy that there have been no locally transmitted cases of Covid-19 and no deaths from the disease in Namibia.
He said with Namibia having now recorded 22 coronavirus infections, due to six new cases registered over the past week, the country must not relax in its fight to restrict the spread of the coronavirus disease.
