44 People In Isolation After Japanese Man In Siem Reap Tests Positive For COVID-19

A Japanese businessman living in Siem Reap tested positive for the novel coronavirus after he reported symptoms and was tested in Nagoya, Japan, triggering the Cambodian Ministry of Health to put 44 people in isolation.

Four individuals – three Cambodians and one Japanese – who worked with the Japanese national in Siem Reap were immediately put in isolation and samples taken to test for COVID-19, said Siem Reap Health Department chief Kros Sarath.

“They came to our office and then we sent our team to disinfect their workplace,” Sarath said. “We also brought in the four staffers who have worked with the man for the past two days to keep in isolation.”
