China, Cambodia hold military drill despite pandemic

COVID-19 has infected nearly 165,000 people in 146 countries or territories, according to WHO.

Despite a continuing coronavirus pandemic, China has launched military exercises with Cambodia.

Tipped to be a booster in bilateral military relations, this is the fourth joint military drill — known as Golden Dragon — between the two countries since 2016, according to Xinhua News Agency.

The exercises being held in Cambodia’s southwestern Kampot province come at a time when the virus, officially known as COVID-19, has spread to 146 countries or territories killing at least 6,470 people. Some 164,837 have been tested positive for the infection that emerged in China last December.
