The health minister, Bernard Haufiku, told parliament Wednesday that the case was reported in Ohangwena, a region in the north of the country, about 800 kilometers from Windhoek.

Haufiku said the patient had been to Lubango in Angola where there has been an outbreak of yellow fever since Dec. 2015.

According to Haufiku, preliminary results had confirmed the case although the ministry has sent samples to a South Africa laboratory for confirmation.

Haufiku said Namibians travelling to Angola must be vaccinated against yellow fever that has so far killed more than 250 people and affected close to 2, 000 others. Enditem
