COVID-19: 16 New Cases, but 14 New Recoveries

Cambodia this morning registered 16 new infections of COVID-19, all of locally transmitted Omicron variant; the tally thus reached 136,390, said a press release of the Ministry of Health made public this morning.

Meanwhile, 14 more patients have recovered; bringing the total cured cases in the Kingdom to 133,258, the ministry added, underlining that there is no new death; the death toll therefore remains at 3,056.

The Kingdom began to register new cases of COVID-19 since June 29, 2022 after 52 days of zero infection.

Recently, Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has confirmed no planned COVID-19 lockdowns thanks to the country’s high vaccination rate, but urged his compatriots to adhere to the health safety rules, particularly the “Three Dos, Three Don’ts” and to get the booster doses against the pandemic.

The first COVID-19 case was reported in Cambodia in late January 2020 in Preah Sihanouk province.
