Four People Quarantined, 40 Others Trailed for Medical Checkups

Four people have been quarantined for 14 days and 40 others have been medically checked, according to the Ministry of Health.

The four people have been found to have close contacts with a Japanese national who has been reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 after departed from Siem Reap province to Japan's Nagoya, with a transit in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City.

The ministry's Spokesman H.E. Ly Sovann said that the four men are now put under quarantine in the Siem Reap provincial referral hospital, while other 40 people, who had indirect contacts with the Japanese man, have been trialed for medical checkups.

The move was taken after the Japanese man, who had travelled to the Philippines and Vietnam, was tested positive for the deadly virus after arriving in Nagoya.

As of Mar. 5, Cambodia has no new confirmed case of Covid-19 after a 60-year-old Chinese man, tested positive in late January, has fully recovered and returned to his home country.
