Namibia has placed new restriction on public gatherings limiting it to ten people at every gathering and should not last for more than two hours if held indoors.
The new restriction is coming after a decree was issued in Namibia on Tuesday in a move to stem the drastic increase in new COVID-19 infections, hospitalisations and deaths in the country.
All contact sports in the country are also temporarily banned and face-to-face teaching in schools will be suspended till further notice.
The new coronavirus-prevention measures will be in place until at least the end of June as President Hage Geingob who himself along with his wife, contracted the virus last month, has described the worsening health trend over the past four weeks as worrying.
The new sanitary measures and restrictions are to ideally improve the situation in Namibia.
The Southern African nation currently sees the highest number of new cases per million people per day after the Seychelles, according to the African Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
Namibia reports 1,040 deaths and a total of 67,021 confirmed COVID-19 cases of which over 1,200 were detected on Tuesday.
