Cambodia reported a daily record 576 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, in a spike in infections since an outbreak detected seven weeks ago that has seen a seven-fold increase in its overall case tally.
Cambodia until recently had one of the world’s smallest coronavirus case totals but the outbreak first detected in late February has led to its first 24 COVID-19 deaths and a climb in infections to 3,604.
“COVID-19 continues to threaten us. Please continue to be vigilant by practicing hygiene, keep social distancing, do not leave your house unnecessarily,” Cambodia’s Communicable Disease Control Department said in a statement posted on Facebook on Friday.
