Namibia – A 47-year-old male Namibian truck driver, who returned from Johannesburg early in May, has become the latest person to test positive for the coronavirus in Namibia, reports Namibian Sun.
He was initially quarantined at the Walvis Bay truckport facility, but later sneaked out with a fellow truck driver.
They were both subsequently apprehended by the police.
The 47-year-old trucker, who remains under supervised quarantine at the Walvis Bay State Hospital, tested positive on the 12th day of his 14-day isolation period.
He is said to be asymptomatic, while contact tracing is ongoing.
This brings the number of confirmed cases in Namibia to 21, health minister Kalumbi Shangula announced on Sunday.
