STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY DR. HAGE G. GEINGOB ON THE OCCASSION OF THE 34th COVID-19 PUBLIC BRIEFING ON THE NATIONAL RESPONSE MEASURES

14 September 2021

COVID-19 continues to be a grave public health threat to our country. Despite some reprieve, we cannot afford to let our collective and individual guards down. However, the last 31 days have offered our country and communities some respite. The country has now recorded a cumulative number of one-hundred-and-twenty-six-thousand-threehundred-and-forty-one (126,341) confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Of these, 96 percent have recovered and 2,7 percent of cases lost their lives. During the period under review, the death rate declined by 85 percent, nationally. However, the case fatality ratio in Omaheke region remains high at 6.3 percent, which is two times the national case fatality rate.

These numbers represent lives of mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children, spiritual,traditional, business, public and community leaders and members. Our country has lost some of its best brains, productive citizens and nation-builders. We have also lost and continue to lose a generation of elders, who possess cultural and indigenous knowledge and wisdom. A vacuum has been left by COVID-19 which we must all now endeavour to fill.

The positivity ratio has declined from 24 percent to 10 percent. The regions which recorded the highest reduction in new infections are Kavango East by 91 percent, Zambezi by 87 percent, Khomas by 82 percent and Erongo region with a 78 percent drop in new cases, respectively. This notable descent on the Incidence Curve must remain everyone’s priority and responsibility. We must all work together in order to suppress further transmission of the virus in our country.

Deutschland und Namibia schließen Wasserstoff-Partnerschaft

25 August 2021

Bundesforschungsministerin Anja Karliczek und der Generaldirektor der namibischen Planungskommission Obeth M. Kandjoze haben eine Wasserstoff-Partnerschaft zwischen Deutschland und Namibia abgeschlossen und hierzu heute in Windhoek und Berlin eine gemeinsame Absichtserklärung (Joint Communiqué of Intent, "JCoI") unterzeichnet.

karliczek deutschland und namibia schlie en wasserstoff partnerschaft

Bundesforschungsministerin Anja Karliczek stellte fest: "Namibia hat enorme Potenziale für den Hochlauf einer grünen Wasserstoffwirtschaft: Das Land verfügt über große, bislang ungenutzte Flächen. Die Windgeschwindigkeiten in Namibia ermöglichen eine besonders profitable Erzeugung von Windstrom. Noch größer ist das Potenzial beim Solarstrom: Über 3.500 Sonnenstunden zählt Namibia jährlich. Das ist fast doppelt so viel wie in Deutschland."

Obeth M. Kandjoze, Generaldirektor der Nationalen Planungskommission Namibias sowie Vorsitzender des namibischen Wasserstoffrates, betonte: "Diese Regierung weiß nur zu gut, dass die Arbeit zur Bekämpfung des Klimawandels weder 2030 noch 2050 beginnt, sondern heute, am 25. August 2021, dem Tag, an dem sich die deutsche und die namibische Regierung die Hände reichen und sagen: Heute bauen wir eine Zukunft, die die Wünsche unseres Volkes widerspiegelt. Die visionäre Führung dieser Nation weiß, dass auf einem Planet, der sich um 1,5 Grad erwärmt, Ereignisse, die früher einmal alle 50 Jahre auftraten, 8,6 Mal wahrscheinlicher werden. Und bei 2 Grad werden diese Ereignisse 13,9 Mal häufiger auftreten. Das ist keine Welt, die wir unseren Kindern hinterlassen wollen."

Dear Friends of Namibia,

This is to share with you some impressions on the COVID-19 relief campaign that has been underway since June 2021. The Embassy of the Republic of Namibia in Berlin has witnessed great public awareness of the COVID-19 situation in Namibia and the resulting efforts to acquire assistance, in the form of donations from all corners of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Republic of Poland and the Czech Republic. All efforts by civil society, businesses and individuals in mobilising assistance and sending donations to the Embassy are highly appreciated!

The first consignment with urgently needed equipment, including CPAP machines and oxygen machines arrived in Namibia on 18 July 2021, where it was received by the Ministry of Health and Social Services for onward transmission to Katutura State Hospital in Windhoek and Gobabis District Hospital in Omaheke Region.

On 21 July 2021, the second consignment was collected by a logistics company from the Embassy, for dispatch to Namibia. The consignment is expected to arrive in Namibia on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 by Lufthansa from Frankfurt.
