Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has called on all medical practitioners to keep updating information and boost cooperation with the international communities to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
At a get-together Wednesday with more than 400 Cambodian health practitioners who stepped forward to volunteer to combat COVID-19, he recommended all health practitioners to do their best to cure the patients.
The Premier advised them to cooperate and share experience with the Chinese medical experts who arrived in Cambodia on Mar. 23 to help the Kingdom and work with the World Health Organisation in coping the deadly virus.
At the same time, Mr Hun Sen urged a clear update on information related to COVID-19 infection and recovery cases. “There is no need for us to hide the data,” he stressed.
The Prime Minister also suggested turning this challenge into an opportunity to inspire people to think of their own and community hygiene.
As of Wednesday night, Cambodia has recorded 96 confirmed cases of COVID-19, of them 10 have recovered – eight Cambodians in Thbong Khmum, Phnom Penh and Battambang, a 60-year-old Chinese tourist, and a 65-year-old British tourist.
