Obstruction of Covid regulations concerning

Police Spokesperson Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi has lamented the carelessness of Namibians who still violate Covid-19 health regulations and attending crowded events while the country’s hospitals are overflowing.

Shikwambi responded to a number of parties held over the last few weekends and urged musicians to consider postponing their music festivals and fewer people attend funerals until the third wave of coronavirus is over.

We are witnessing how people succumbed to this dreadful disease on a daily basis. At funerals, they must apply strict regulations and extended families and friends must respect the wishes of the family. We earnestly need to comprehend that it is not business as usual. We are fighting an invisible enemy and therefore any form of the carelessness or negligence will cause many to be infected and some to perish, including the innocent,” she said.

She added that Namibians cannot rely on the police force only but must show moral consciousness and guide each other to be responsible.

Event organizer Abraham Amushila agreed that Namibians must choose life over money or death and urged musicians to reconsider hosting big events.

“We honestly need to choose lives over money. We are turning a serious blind eye to this. We need to focus on using digital resources such as live streaming and others. Events are dangerous for everyone, the organizers, security and the fans,” he said.

In his last Covid-19 update the health minister Dr. Kalumbi Shangula said more infections means more people need to be in hospitals and the Katutura and Windhoek Central Hospitals are seeing more patients than there are beds for.

“The main driver of the transmission of Covid-19 currently is human behaviour. The measures in place were designed to regulate human behaviour in such a way as to limit transmissions. We have not been successful due to two things. One of lack of compliance and two, lack of enforcement. We are encouraged by the increasing demand for vaccinations,” he said.
