Ministry Told to Test More After Week of No New Covid-19 Cases

After more than a week of no new Covid-19 cases reported in the country, the World Health Organization’s representative said the Health Ministry had been advised to increase testing and contact tracing while Cambodia was still in an early stage of the global pandemic.

The statement came as latest test figures from the ministry show that less than a quarter of the number of samples that could be tested each day, at the current national capacity, were processed on average last week.

“We advise [the] Ministry of Health to expand, a little bit more aggressive contact tracing and testing more,” Li Ailan, WHO’s country representative, said on Monday during a press conference in Phnom Penh.
