China’s General Administration of Customs published a list of 46 meat processing plants around the world that have halted exports to China due to COVID-19 outbreaks among their workers. But Namibia, so far, is not on the list.

If Namibian meat processing facilities can remain COVID-free, sales are poised to increase further.
