Cambodia has recorded a new imported COVID-19 case raising the tally of infections to 308, with one new recovery.


In a statement issued today, the Health Ministry said the new case is an American woman, 62, who returned from the US via a flight from South Korea on Thursday.

She had tested positive for the virus yesterday and is being treated at the Khmer-Soviet friendship hospital in Phnom Penh.

Seventy-three passengers with her tested negative for COVID-19 and are being quarantined for 14 days at two hotels in Phnom Penh.

The ministry also said an American woman has recovered after testing negative for the virus twice.

She was discharged from the Khmer-Soviet friendship hospital yesterday.

To date, 308 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the Kingdom since January with 299 recoveries, nine under treatment and zero deaths since the pandemic first reared its head in Cambodia in late January.
