The Minister of Health and Social Services Kalumbi Shangula announced two more cases of the COVID-19 virus, bringing the number of infected people in Namibia to 18.
Two Namibian females who were under quarantine tested positive of the deadly virus but do not display symptoms of COVID-19, while their conditions are said to be satisfactory. The two are aged 66 and 28 years old.
The announcement comes at time when the country recorded no new positive case of COVID-19 in 45 days, according to the Minister.
“Yesterday (Wednesday) when I gave an update on COVID-19 in Namibia, I stated that, although we have made good progress, it does not mean that we have put COVID-19 in Namibia under control,” Shangula said.
“Today, I am informing the public that we have two new cases of COVID-19 in Namibia,” he added.
According to the minister, 97 people were tested on Wednesday, out of which 95 tested negative from the world pandemic.
