Cambodia’s last patient who was being treated for the new coronavirus has been discharged from hospital, in a recovery that left the country with zero active cases, according to the health ministry.

The 36-year-old woman from Cambodia’s northwest Banteay Meanchey province was on Saturday released from the Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital in the capital, Phnom Penh, and was presented to the media in a live stream on Saturday.

The ministry, however, urged continued vigilance against COVID-19, the highly infectious respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus. No easing of restrictions, including school closures and border entry checks and quarantines, were included in the ministry’s statement on Saturday.
