THE latest government decisions about the COVID-19 pandemic and new national response measures will be shared with the Namibian Nation when President Hage Geingob will address the nation in this regard on Friday afternoon.
With the exception of the Erongo Region, the country progressed to an extended Stage 4 of the State of Emergency at the beginning of July this year.
The Local Authority Areas of Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Arandis, under a special dispensation, were placed in lockdown while the rest of the Erongo Region remained in Stage 3.
During the address President Geingob is expected to announce new measures with regard to the three towns under lockdown and the sudden increase of new COVID-19 cases across Namibia.
The address is set to start at 15:00 and will be broadcast live from the Situation Room at State House.
