The World Health Organization on Monday urged the Cambodian government to prepare for a potential large-scale outbreak of the respiratory disease in the country, and to bolster stocks of personal protective equipment, face masks and ventilators.
The Ministry of Health and relevant stakeholders held a press conference on Monday, where the World Health Organization (WHO) country representative, Dr. Li Ailan, said the situation in Cambodia remains “very, very serious,” despite the low number of reported cases in Cambodia.
As of Tuesday morning, Cambodia had reported 122 cases, with two consecutive days of no new cases. The country has reported 91 recoveries, meaning three-quarters of infected patients had recovered from the respiratory disease. No one in Cambodia has died of the virus, health officials say.
