Lanmei airlines, believed to be the only Cambodian registered airline flying to the epicenter of the coronavirus, Wuhan,, has suspended direct flights from and between Wuhan and Sihanoukville.


The flights suspension came after three patients were warded and tested negative for for the coronavirus which has now spread to almost every continent in the world.

Dr. Ly Sovan, Director of the Department of Infectious Disease and a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, confirmed that the analysis from Pasteur Institute showed that the three patients did not have the coronavirus, as initially suspected because of the symptoms displayed.

Direct flights from the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, China, to Sihanoukville (Lanmei Airlines) have been suspended.

The death toll from the deadly rapidly spreading virus has climbed to 42, all in China while the number inflicted has increased to more than 1,400 alone and 38 cases outside China in 13 countries.
