Cambodia ends 52 days of zero Covid cases

Cambodia has ended a 52-day streak of zero Covid-19 cases with fresh cases of the Omicron variant emerging and the government urging the public to get their third and fourth vaccinations and adhere to preventative health measures.

Prime Minister Hun Sen has also ordered health authorities to closely monitor the latest outbreaks, saying he feared the worst, despite this country winning widespread praise for its handling of the crisis through a swift rollout of its vaccination program.
