Namibia has become the latest African country to record cases of corona virus (Covid-19), the government confirmed on Saturday.
Namibian Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr Kalumbi Shangala, confirmed that two tourists, a couple from Spain who arrived in the country, tested positive for the virus.
"They were attended to by a private doctor who sent samples to South Africa for testing and the tests came out positive," Shangala said.
They are now being monitored under the World Health Organisation guidelines.
Shangala said the Namibian Government and partners are doing all that is necessary to deal with the situation and avoid further spread of the virus in the country.
