Country to reopen on 5 May – President

The President HE. Dr Hage Geingob on Tuesday extended the country’s lockdown by two weeks until May 4 to slowdown the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

This time, the lockdown will be countrywide and not just the previous two regions.

Speaking at state house, Geingob said the health of Namibians still remains the first priority.

“Key priority remains curbing the disease and protecting the health of our people and economy of our country. It is in view of this that government has decided to introduce further measures,” he said.

Geingob said the country will reopen on 5 May while reiterating that during this period, movement within the country will be restricted. Namibia has so far recorded 16 positive cases of COVID-19.
