The Minister of Health and Social Services Dr. Kalumbi Shangula says, although the World Health Organisation has declared the end of the COVID-19 pandemic as a global health emergency, and Namibia has seen a decline in the positive rate, the country will not ignore its existence.

More than 775 million people were affected, while close to 7 million people died from the pandemic globally. 

Namibia had its fair share of infections and fatalities. 

Shangula says that despite declaring the end to the pandemic as an emergency, the country will continue to monitor the situation and take necessary precautionary measures when necessary.

Dr Shangula briefed the media in the capital, as his report from the World Health Summit in Geneva, where Namibia took part.
