Namibia has received 30 840 tourists from South Africa out of 61 663 between September 2020 to March this year as part of the Tourism Revival Initiative. This represents 50% of tourist arrivals to Namibia during the period. Months after government started rolling out the Covid-19 vaccination campaign, only 1 440 people have been fully vaccinated in the Kunene region, while 5 976 have received their first doses.

President Hage Geingob yesterday expressed shock over rising deaths due to Covid-19, saying even the government’s allocation for state funerals has been exhausted.

The Namibia Bus and Taxi Association (Nabta) has raised concern that its members are no longer making money following the reintroduction of public health regulations with a reduced customer seating capacity.
