Cambodia brings down active COVID-19 cases to zero

The last patient being treated for COVID-19 in Cambodia has been discharged over the weekend. With the 36-year-old woman’s recovery on Saturday, 16 May, the health ministry has said that Cambodia’s active coronavirus cases have been brought down to zero.

Despite this bit of good news, the ministry cautioned the public to remain vigilant against the fatal viral disease. Health Minister Mam Bunheng advised people to take all the necessary precautions and avoid gathering in large groups.

“We think that most of the cases, generally, are imported, so we must be careful with all checkpoints at the border, at airports, at ports, at land checkpoints. People who travel from abroad must have a certificate confirming that they don’t have COVID-19. Only then would we allow them in, and once they are in, they will be quarantined for another 14 days,” he said.

The government will likewise retain all restrictions, including border entry checks and quarantines, as a preventive measure. Schools will remain closed until November, the start of the new academic year.

Cambodia has reported 122 coronavirus cases and zero deaths from COVID-19. The country’s last recorded case was in 12 April. Since January, the ministry has done 14,684 tests.
