The Minister of Health and Social Services today confirmed a Hepatitis E outbreak, with at least one confirmed death, in Windhoek.
Dr Bernhard Haufiku told NBC News that the uncommon virus is transmitted via the faecal oral route, principally via contaminated water, dirty and poorly sanitised environments.
A media conference is scheduled for tomorrow in Windhoek, where Dr Haufiku will give more information about the outbreak.
