U.S. woman tests positive for COVID-19 in Cambodia

An American woman tested positive for COVID-19 a week after arriving in Cambodia from the United States, the Cambodian Health Ministry said on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old woman landed in the capital city of Phnom Penh on Nov. 4 via a connecting flight in South Korea, the ministry said in a statement, adding that she tested negative for the coronavirus upon her arrival, and was required to quarantine for 14 days at a hotel in the capital.

“On the 7th day of quarantine, her samples were taken for a second test and the result showed (on Tuesday) that she turned out to be positive for the COVID-19,” the statement said. “Currently, the patient is undergoing treatment at the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital.”
