The Ministry of Health on Monday said a Covid-19 patient has recovered and been discharged from the Khmer–Soviet Friendship Hospital.
This brings the number of recovered patients to 130 out of the 141 patients in the Kingdom – or about 92 per cent. Another eleven remain hospitalised.
The 29-year-old Cambodian man tested positive for Covid-19 on June 13. He had boarded a flight along with other 46 others from Indonesia and arrived in Cambodia on June 12.
“Eleven Covid-19 patients remain at the state hospital. Eight are Cambodian, including a woman. An Indonesian man returning from Indonesia on June 25 also remains hospitalised at the Khmer–Soviet Friendship Hospital.
“The other two patients who returned from Malaysia on June 26 remain hospitalised at the Chak Angre Health Center, Phnom Penh,” the ministry said.
Cambodia has yet to detect community transmission cases with almost all confirmed ones being imported from abroad, said health officials.
Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng reminded citizens on June 28 to wash hands frequently with soap or gel, wear facemasks or scarves when sneezing or coughing and maintain social and physical distancing to prevent a second wave of infections in Cambodia.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) said those who have a high risk of infection are the ones who don’t apply measures to protect themselves and travel frequently.
WHO confirmed on Monday that globally, nearly 10 million people have contracted the virus and 500,000 have died from it.
