Westerdam passenger from Cambodia confirmed as Malaysia’s 22nd COVID-19 case (video)

An 83-year-old American woman who was among 145 people to disembark the cruise ship MS Westerdam at Cambodia’s Sihanoukville port on Friday was today (Feb 15) confirmed as Malaysia’s 22nd COVID-19 case.

The woman, along with her husband who has so far tested negative despite exhibiting symptoms, flew to Kuala Lumpur on Friday after the ship docked amidst much fanfare after being denied berthing rights at five other ports.

In a statement issued Saturday afternoon, Malaysia’s health ministry said the woman was detected by airport screening on arrival and transferred to the Sungai Buloh Hospital.
