President Hage Geingob on Wednesday announced new COVID-19 response measures effective Thursday until 30 November 2020 for all 14 regions. The Namibia Press Agency reports that while speaking at State House, Geingob said though the new measures are relaxed, compliance and personal responsibility must continue to be at the centre of the response of every Namibian. He said the country has experienced a 61 per cent reduction in the number of new cases. The new measures include that all travellers such as business people, tourists, and Namibians arriving in the country with the 72 hour Polymerase Chain Reaction COVID-19 test will be permitted to proceed to their final destinations and the mandatory five-day retest has been withdrawn. Whilst travellers arriving in Namibia with a negative PCR test that is older than 72 hours but not older than seven days will be permitted to enter the country, non-Namibians who do not present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result will not be granted entry into Namibia.
