DONATIONS FOR NAMIBIA TOWARDS COVID-19 RELIEF

Dear Friends of Namibia,

This is to share with you some impressions on the COVID-19 relief campaign that has been underway since June 2021. The Embassy of the Republic of Namibia in Berlin has witnessed great public awareness of the COVID-19 situation in Namibia and the resulting efforts to acquire assistance, in the form of donations from all corners of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Republic of Poland and the Czech Republic. All efforts by civil society, businesses and individuals in mobilising assistance and sending donations to the Embassy are highly appreciated!

The first consignment with urgently needed equipment, including CPAP machines and oxygen machines arrived in Namibia on 18 July 2021, where it was received by the Ministry of Health and Social Services for onward transmission to Katutura State Hospital in Windhoek and Gobabis District Hospital in Omaheke Region.

On 21 July 2021, the second consignment was collected by a logistics company from the Embassy, for dispatch to Namibia. The consignment is expected to arrive in Namibia on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 by Lufthansa from Frankfurt.

For any donations, kindly contact the Embassy at info[ at]namibia-botschaft.de or direct deposit into the following bank account. The funds will be used to purchase essential medical equipment.

STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY DR. HAGE G. GEINGOB ON THE OCCASSION OF THE 31st COVID-19 PUBLIC BRIEFING ON THE NATIONAL RESPONSE MEASURES, 15 JULY 2021

Fellow Namibians, good morning.

The country has crossed two significant milestones over the past 14-day observance period. We have exceeded 100,000 cumulative cases and over 2,000 deaths have been
recorded due to COVID-19 and related illness.

As of 14 July, a total of one-hundred-and-eight-thousand-seven-hundred-and-eightyfive (108,785) Namibians have at some point contracted and been infected with the
COVID-19, over the course of the past 16 months. Encouragingly, 75 percent have
recovered, while twenty-four-thousand-six-hundred-and-seventy (24,670) are still infected. We remember in prayer, all those who are ill, battling for their lives, and the countless families, who mourn the loss of their loved ones. May you all be comforted.

True character is revealed in times of crisis. I thank all Namibians, our healthcare and frontline workers, for their tireless, daily sacrifices which they selflessly render for the common good. Let us continue to wage this war, unrelentingly in the face of adversity,unflinchingly when confronted by fear. Let us fight for the ultimate gifts of human life and health.

MINISTRY OF HEALTH ANS SOCIAL SERVICES STATEMENT BY DR. KALUMBI SHANGULA, MP, MINISTER OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES AT THE OCASSION OF THE 31ST COVID-19 PUBLIC BRIEFING

15 JULY 2021

Since the last public briefing by H. E. Dr Hage G. Geingob on the 30 June 2021, the Covid-19 epidemiological situation in the country has remained static in terms of new infections, hospitalisation and deaths. For the entire duration of the country-wide restriction of movement the daily new infections remained high above the one thousand
mark. The number of deaths has correspondingly remained above 20 deaths per day, peaking at 150 deaths announced on the 13 July 2021. The pressure on the hospital beds and oxygen supply has remained sustained at high levels.

2. On 5 July 2021, I have officially announced the presence of delta variant of Covid-19 in Khomas based on laboratory determination. The current epidemiological situation is defined by a number of variables. This infective agent can spread rapidly and appears to be more transmissible. It is virulent causing severe illness which require hospitalisation and intensive care. Secondly, the high interactions among the public aid its high transmissibility. Although several public health measures are put in place to curb its spread, these are rendered less effective due to non compliance with them and
inadequate enforcement. Since the infective agent is relatively new, as it enter in a non-immune population in Namibia, its infectivity is greatly enhanced.

3. In response to the challenges, the government undertook certain measures in order to address the situation and to mitigate the impact of the pandemic. The government has adopted the policy of strengthening and expanding the existing hospitals instead of creating stand-alone facilities. In this way, the new facilities benefit from the existing health infrastructure like theatres, intensive care units, X-ray facilities, dental services,
maternity services, and not to mention the scarce human resource like medical specialists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, social workers, physiotherapists as well as other support structures among them, mortuaries, laundry, kitchen and others. I shall expand on specific interventions later on. I shall now elaborate on specific public health measures as announced by H. E. the President. The continuation of the measures is justified given the little dividends we have received thus far.
