The Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr Richard Kamwi has

advised Namibians not to travel to Ebola affected countries as well as

advising those who intend to come to Namibia from Ebola affected

countries not to come to Namibia until further notice.

Dr Kamwi who was speaking at a press conference few minutes

ago said it came to their knowledge that some Namibians are

travelling to Ebola affected countries for mass gatherings like religious

congregations, sports, conferences among others.

“I strongly advise that no Namibian should take the risk of travelling

to the affected countries, thereby getting infected and upon return

infect other fellow Namibians. We do not need to panic but let us not

be complacent and ensure that our emergency response system is well

functioning and protective medical equipment are well stocked up in

case of the unlikely event of the virus coming south.

As a result of the above, I had consulted with my Principals – His

Excellency the President, the Rt. Hon Prime Minister, and my senior

colleagues, the Ho Minister of Home Affairs as well as the Attorney

General regarding travel advisory as one of the control measures,” he

said.
