Two Cambodians tested positive for Covid-19 this past weekend after they had been released from two separate quarantine centers, leaving health workers to trace more than 50 people with whom they were in contact, officials said.
Tbong Khmum Provincial Health Department director Keo Vannak said on Tuesday that a 29-year-old Cambodian man tested positive again for the virus on Saturday — 13 days after he had been discharged from Chak Angre Health Center in Phnom Penh.
Vannak said the man, who had arrived in the country from Saudia Arabia on July 10, was supposed to be self-isolating at home for another 13 days after his release, but he had direct or indirect contact with 47 people, including nine family members. His relatives’ samples were taken on Saturday and they each received negative Covid-19 results on Sunday.
