Namibia Bans Food Imports From Cholera-Hit Zambia

US specialists are in Lusaka to assist the health ministry after the Cholera outbreak. 
The Namibian government on Thursday provisionally banned the import of all perishable food, fish, fruits, unprocessed food and water from neighbouring Zambia, which has been hit by a cholera outbreak.
So far, 60 people have died.
The ban came into effect on Monday and will stay until the situation in Zambia returns to normal, an official
from the Ministry of Health and Social Services, who did not want to be named, told Reuters.

Zambia is one of Namibia’s top four trading partners and its exports to Namibia totalled around 322 million dollars in 2016, the latest available data.
Zambian media reported on Monday that cases of cholera continued to rise and the number nationwide stood at
about 2,600, with 66 fatalities.
The Zambian government has banned all public gatherings in a bid to contain the spread of the deadly disease.
The Zambian High Commissioner and trade attaché to Namibia were not available for comment when contacted by Reuters.
