To be ready for any potential spike in COVID-19 pandemic victims, the government has reserved more than 3,000 rooms for potential patients.

In stating this, Prime Minister Hun Sen said “More than 3,000 rooms of hotels, school buildings, dormitories and other public buildings across the country have been arranged to receive COVID-19 patients.

In Phnom Penh, there are four places ready for COVID-19 patients, including Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital, Chak Angre Health Centre, Preah Ket Mealea military Hospital, and Great Duke Hotel.

The Premier underlined that all patients, regardless of their nationalities, tested positive for COVID-19 in Cambodia have free of charge access to treatment.

According to the Prime Minister, Cambodia has over 20,000 health practitioners, of them more than 2,000 have been ready to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

He added that the Royal Government’s recruitment of volunteer health practitioners this time is part of a commitment to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in the Kingdom.

As of this morning, Cambodia has recorded 93 confirmed cases of COVID-19, of them six have recovered – four Cambodians from 41 to 61 years old, a 60-year-old Chinese tourist, and a 65-year-old British tourist.
