Cambodia’s Ministry of Health said on the 29th that there were seven new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, of which six were community-borne cases. This is the first time that a community-borne case has been found in Cambodia.
Cambodia’s Ministry of Health said that a newly discovered 56-year-old Cambodian female patient has no recent history of traveling abroad and it is impossible to confirm the source of infection. She was tested positive for nucleic acid three days after symptoms, and her husband and five other family members also tested positive. At present, all six patients are being isolated and treated in the hospital, and the relevant departments are looking for people who have come into contact with them.
The Cambodian Ministry of Health said that the female patient went shopping in a shopping mall on the 21st. The government has ordered the temporary closure of the mall to track people who have come into contact with patients. The Ministry of Health called on customers who had gone to the mall after the 21st to be tested for nucleic acid as soon as possible, and the relevant personnel should be quarantined at home for 14 days or go to the isolation point for isolation.
Cambodia’s Ministry of Health also reported one new imported case on the same day. The 31-year-old female patient left the United States and transited through South Korea. She arrived in Cambodia on the 27th and is currently receiving isolation treatment in the hospital. The other 56 passengers on the same flight are also being quarantined.
As of the morning of the 29th, Cambodia had a total of 315 confirmed cases of COVID-19, of which 301 had been cured and no deaths had occurred.
