As many as 527 learners and 165 teachers have tested positive for Covid-19 countrywide and are currently in isolation, education ministry executive director Sanet Steenkamp confirmed yesterday. The health ministry has suspended all non-emergency referral patients from regions to the Central and Katutura intermediate hospitals in order to decongest the two state facilities to accommodate Covid-19 patients. A police officer, stationed at Rehoboth, who is being investigated for allegedly threatening to rape and murder several victims on social media, has filed a case of defamation of character against two women. A group of 30 doctors in Namibia have appealed to the health ministry and the Namibia Medicines Regulatory Council (NMRC) to approve Ivermectin as a Covid-19 therapy. The Rehoboth police are investigating a case involving a medical doctor who is accused of physically assaulting a nurse in front of patients. Glowing tributes have been pouring in for former Swapo parliamentarian Chief Samuel Ankama, who died on Sunday in a northern hospital aged 63. Constituency councillors in the Khomas region said although some community members were initially hesitant to take the Covid-19 vaccines, more people are now interested in getting the shot. Informal traders at the Okuryangava Stop n Shop market say they are disturbed by the actions of the City Police, who confiscated their products while they try to make an honest living. Khomas governor Laura Mcleod-Katjirua says the region will work with stakeholders to ensure adherence to Covid-19 public health regulations. The Covid-19 pandemic has devastated families across Namibia, left a number of children orphaned or without one parent, and the founder of 'Candid Talks with Operi' thus donated items to five orphaned babies at the Windhoek Central Hospital recently. The marginalised communities from the Ruacana and Otamanzi constituencies in the Omusati region have shown up in big numbers to receive their Covid-19 vaccine doses, councillors informed New Era last week. ǂGiǂgōsi ǀawemā-aon ǀKhomas ǀkharib din ge ra mî, ǂgurosan ge ǀnî ǁanǂgāsabena Covid-19 !oagu !khāǁkhaehesa gere îganǀge, xawen ǂgui khoena nēsi !khāǁkhaehesa a māsenxasa. Covid-19 vaccine doses at Oshakati, Rehoboth and Windhoek have completely run out as government waits for the delivery of new stock later this week. Although Namibia and South Africa have signed over 90 bilateral agreements, South Africa’s international relations minister Naledi Pandor explained only a few of them are successfully implemented. New Era journalist Loide Jason recently engaged Windhoek mayor Job Amupanda on a number of issues, including an assessment on the performance of the governing coalition since taking over the city last year. The Okahao Town Council will close its doors today for disinfection following the sudden death of a security guard whose lifeless body was discovered on Saturday morning in his duty office. Despite the economic fallout caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development said it has achieved its goal of delivering 200 residentialunits. Windhoek Rural councillor Piet Adams says he is concerned about the safety of farmworkers who were recently evicted from farm Tsatsaxas near Dordabis, saying the timing of the evictions is a big problem. The Medical Rescue 911 is calling on Windhoek residents to assist them with setting up a Covid-19 medical centre in Khomasdal.
