The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) downgraded Namibia from Level 2: Moderate Risk to Level 1: Low Risk on September 19.
To be listed Level 1: Low Risk, a destination must have had 49 or fewer new cases per 100 000 residents over the past 28 days.
The CDC also downgraded three other African nations to Level 1 – Morocco, Cape Verde and Mauritania.
Regardless of the risk classification levels, the CDC still recommends that travellers are up to date with their vaccines before travelling internationally.
