Labour expert Herbert Jauch, who has recovered from the coronavirus, said the doctors and nurses who treated him brought him “back from the dead”
He told medical staff they helped him evade death by putting their own lives on the line, after being released from Lady Pohamba Private Hospital. “Ten days ago, when I came here, there was nothing left of me, my body was gone,” he said.
Giving thanks to the medical team that assisted him, Jauch said their sacrifices saved his life.
“The nurses and doctors did everything to save me; they brought me back from the dead. You sacrificed everything; your life, your health. Thank you so much,” an emotional Jauch said as he was being discharged.
By Saturday, Covid-19 had claimed 69 Namibian lives, while the country had recorded over 7 000 cases. During an address on government's measures to address the global pandemic, President Hage Geingob on Friday urged Namibians to exercise caution in order to limit the spread of the virus.
