Outside the Hosea Kutako International Airport in Namibia, a mobile hospital has been set up for the immediate containment and treatment of coronavirus cases.

The unit was moved from the Okahandja military base to accommodate suspected coronavirus patients, and to allow for immediate treatment when detected at the international airport.

The hospital is said to have 18 beds, an intensive care unit with two beds, a pre-theatre reception with one stretcher and a casualty department with four stretchers.

Kalumbi Shangula, the Health Minister said that the hospital was set up to ensure immediate containment and treatment of coronavirus cases.

He announced that the mobile field hospital is up and running and that it will be used for the testing, treatment and quarantine of individuals suspected of having contracted the coronavirus.
