10 Ohangwena cops contract Covid

ONGWEDIVA – Ten police officers, stationed at Eenhana in the Ohangwena region, are amongst the 12 people who tested positive for coronavirus at the northern town on Sunday. 
The ten police officers were reportedly in contact with a colleague who was buried at the town over a week ago.
The 49-year-old woman is the first victim to have succumbed to the virus at the town.

Ohangwena police regional commander, Commissioner Elizabeth Sibolile confirmed the ten positive cases yesterday. 
Sibolile said the new cases include officers stationed at the police headquarters and the Eenhana police station.
The regional commander said the offices have already been fumigated and the police is fully operational.
The commander could not ascertain whether the police officers who tested positive were in contact with the police officer who was buried at the town.
“That I do not know, but there is a lot of interaction [among] the officers,” said Sibolile.
By Sunday, the Ohangwena region had recorded a cumulative 68 confirmed cases.

Regional health director John Hango said the Okongo hospital currently has eight beds while the Engela district hospital has 70 beds for isolation purposes. 
Hango said a prefabricated isolation facility is also planned for Eenhana.
At the moment, all Eenhana cases are being sent for isolation at Engela hospital. 
“Private facilities are also identified in the Oshikango area, as well as Eenhana town to accommodate patients for isolation purposes if patients can no longer fit in the hospitals,” said Hango.

The director said the biggest challenge in the region at the moment is people not adhering to the preventative measures in place.
He said another challenge is gatherings, saying people are not sticking to the maximum ten persons as prescribed in the regulations.
“The gatherings are too many and they are full of people,” said Hango.

    Hey, Some months ago I had sex with the third guy in my life whom i was about to marry and now I have herpes. I couldn’t believe it because he wasn’t a random guy, he’s the closet guy I’ve had as a boyfriend, but it has been a never nightmare since. I’ve always believed in GOD and have asked him for forgiveness which is ironic. I felt like killing myself with the taught of having a husband and family will be quite difficult and i felt like I’m not really in the room when people are talking. I didn’t know what to do and pretty much cry and pray every day to God for help and looking at my family with so much love and feeling that i have disappointed them even though they don’t know. Until God lead me to Dr Alabi online who promised to help me cure my disease through herbs. At first i didn't believe him, but to my greatest surprise i was cured completely by herbals, which medical doctor also verified that i was cured. Special thanks to Dr Alabi, Don't be discourage because he that did it for me will also do it for you and you can contact him through via email @ naturalstdscure@gmail.com or Whatsapp +2348036536685 I promise to share the experience with others the moment it work out for me! you meet not need it but help some one with similar issue God bless you all....
