Lockdown might be extended to other regions

President Hage Geingob today announced that the 21-day lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19 will be extended to other regions.
The lockdown, starting at midnight, is applicable for Khomas and Erongo regions but will be extended to other regions of the country.
This is because people are travelling from the two regions to other regions to escape the lockdown.
The President also highlighted that essential services will be required to report for duty.
Health Minister Kalumbi Shangula gave guidelines for the lockdown.
He said all the essential services will remain in full force including all people involved in the production of basic services.
People who will be allowed to travel will be to pharmacies and for basic needs.
Not more than three people should do physical exercises together.
Only one person from a household will be allowed to visit shops.
Passenger restrictions for four-seater vehicles are limited to not more than three persons and for seven-seater vehicles are limited to not more than four persons.
The public has been once again urged to observe the distance of not more than 10 persons for all gatherings.
COVID-19-related funerals will be handled by the State.
The penalties for violating lockdowns will be punishable by N$5 000 fine or arrest.
The minister also said a special fund has been established and all Namibians are encouraged to contribute.
