Namibia has recorded two more COVID-19 positive cases, bringing the total cases to 16.
The latest cases involve a 31-year-old teacher, who tested positive after coming into contact with a friend who travelled from South Africa, and a 36-year-old medical doctor who also arrived in Namibia after travelling to South Africa.
This was revealed by Health Minister Kalumbi Shangula during the latest briefing on the pandemic today.
Shangula added that both patients approached the Robert Mugabe Clinic with various symptoms such as sore throats, body pain, fever and shortness of breath, which prompted health professionals to test them for the virus.
Both results came back positive on 30 March and 04 April respectively and have since been placed under isolation and their conditions are both "satisfactory", according to Shangula.
He emphasised that there are a total of 362 samples of COVID-19 which are undergoing testing at both the Namibia Institute of Pathology (NIP) and PathCare, some of which have been transferred for testing in South Africa.
