WINDHOEK, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Some Namibian experts say that the Chinese government has been doing well in controlling the spread of the coronavirus while at the same time promoting social and economy development.
The Chinese government's control of the virus not to spread to African countries is fruitful, said clinical psychologist Shaun Whittaker.
"So far we have not recorded any deaths due to the virus in the Southern African Development Community(SADC) countries. That is a sign that the Chinese government has informed and educated us on time and with right message about the virus. I am pleased to say that the government did exceptionally well. On the other hand we also need to congratulate the African governments for supporting each other to fight the further spread of the virus especially if it comes to border controls," he said.
Whittaker added that running a government effectively amid the disease outbreak is not easy but the Chinese government did not back down for constantly promoting economic growth and social development.
Political commentator in the University of Namibia, Ndumba Kamanya, has said that Chinese government has managed to stay focus beside challenges it faces.
"We need to be mindful about the fact that we are lucky to have the Chinese as our bilateral partners in some sectors such as the health sector. We should thank them for even informing the rest of the world about the outbreak on time. " he said.
