The ‘Brave Warriors’ of Namibia 2021 African Nations Championship (Chan) preparations have temporarily been halted as Covid-19 infiltrates the training camp.
The local-based players have been in camp since 8 December 2020 and after the routine tests done on 29 December 2020, 10 players and one technical staff member tested positive for Covid-19.
The Namibia Football Association (NFA) immediately activated the relevant protocols that includes isolation and calling off group activities temporarily.
Affected by this is the pre-Chan preparatory tournament in Rwanda involving the hosts, Namibia and DR Congo which was set for 7-11 January 2021.
The 2021 Chan finals in Cameroon is scheduled for 16 January to 7 February 2021, while Namibia will compete in Group D along with Guinea, Tanzania and Zambia.
