Namibia’s tourism industry could be negatively affected by the listing of the country as a “high-risk” destination by America’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC placed Namibia and three other countries at a Level 3 travel risk, down from Level 2, or “moderate” risk. To be considered a Level 3 or high-risk destination, countries must have more than 100 new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents over the past 28 days. We contacted the CEO of the Hospitality Association of Namibia Gitta Paetzold for her reaction.
