Seventy-five (75) new cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) were reported in Cambodia this morning; bringing the tally to 1,505.
The Ministry of Health’s press release shows that the 75 new cases aged from 12 to 72 years old are all linked to the Feb. 20 Communality Event. Almost all of them are Cambodians and the rest are Chinese nationals. The majority of them live in Phnom Penh.
At the same time, 22 COVID-19 patients aged between 19 and 52 years old have recovered. The total cured cases in Cambodia therefore rose to 840, with a death case recorded.
One of the newly-recovered cases is a Cambodian soldier returning from his UN peacekeeping mission in Africa, and the rest, including 17 Chinese, 13 Cambodians, and 1 Singaporean in Phnom Penh capital and Preah Sihanouk and Koh Kong provinces, are connected to the Feb. 20 incident. They all have been allowed to be discharged after being tested negative twice consecutively.
