February 10, the Cambodian Ministry of Defense began to vaccinate Cambodian officers and soldiers with Chinese-assisted coronavirus vaccine at the Royal Army General Hospital of Cambodia.
Umbisse, the commander-in-chief of the Royal Cambodian army, became the first Cambodian soldier to be vaccinated against Chinese coronavirus.
After personally supervising the whole vaccination process, Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Di Ban said that the officers of the Royal Cambodian Army have been vaccinated against Chinese vaccine one after another, which further strengthened the confidence of the Cambodian people.
China’s vaccine adds another layer of protection to front-line high-risk officers and soldiers to prevent pandemic.
Vaccination with Chinese vaccine makes officers and soldiers feel safer when they carry out their tasks.
After vaccination, Umbisse expressed gratitude to China for providing coronavirus vaccine to Cambodia, especially the Cambodian royal army.
As the army that gives priority to receiving Chinese vaccine assistance, the Royal Cambodian army is very proud.
Inoculation with Chinese vaccine protects the physical and mental health of Cambodian officers and soldiers, which is the most important thing.
Li Jingfeng, a military attaché of the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, said that the military medical expert group had previously carried out two phases of Chinese vaccination training for Cambodian military and local medical staff, which had improved the confidence of Cambodian medical staff in vaccination.
We believe that the Chinese vaccine will provide health guarantees for the Cambodian Royal Army to carry out many tasks under the normalization of COVID-19 protection, and can also effectively boost the confidence of the Cambodian state and army in the fight against the pandemic.
The first batch of vaccines from China to assist Cambodian troops arrived in Cambodia on the 7th.
On the 10th, the Cambodian Ministry of Defense began to vaccinate Cambodian royal officers and soldiers.
