The Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr. Kalumbi Shangula, briefed the media this afternoon on the rise of respiratory illnesses among children in northern China.

The Ministry is actively investigating and implementing preventive measures, emphasising public vigilance and prompt medical attention.

In his media briefing, Dr. Shangula reassured the Namibians, stating that the ongoing COVID-19 and influenza surveillance activities have not identified an increase in respiratory infections or associated hospitalisations or deaths in Namibia.

The Ministry, therefore, maintains its current posture in response to the situation and encourages Namibians to remain calm.
