The Alliance of Christian Churches of Namibia has called on the Ministry of Health and Social Services to review the guidelines to allow churches to gather in proportion to the size of the building while maintaining social distancing and other health measures. The Namibia press agency reports quotes Bishop Lucas Katenda as saying that churches are better organised to adhere to all health guidelines than schools and other places, and the limitation of the number of 50 people allowed at gatherings is a concern, insisting that churches are also essential service providers and their role should be considered by the government.
