Namibia to intensify COVID-19 vaccination campaign after lifting restrictions

WINDHOEK (XINHUA) – Namibian President Hage Geingob on Friday announced that all restrictions imposed on the COVID-19 pandemic were removed.

Geingob was speaking during the country’s 45th COVID-19 public briefing, where he also said the government would intensify its vaccination campaign.

“We believe that vaccination is necessary to protect the nation against any outbreak of new variants of COVID-19,” he said.

In addition, foreign travellers are required to present vaccination certificates at point of entry, similar to the requirement for travellers to produce certificates of vaccination against Yellow Fever in some countries.

Geingob stated the COVID-19 control would be carried out in the same way as was for Hepatitis E.
