Cambodia now claims it is now completely free of Covid-19, according to a statement released by the country’s health ministry yesterday. The last recorded case has recovered and Cambodia has entered a state of “Covid Zero.”
The southeast Asian nation – which has a population of 16.7 million – recorded a total of 136,262 cases, 133,206 recoveries and 3,056 Covid-19 deaths since January 2020. Thailand – which has a population of 69.8 million – recorded 30,218 deaths comparatively.
So how has Cambodia managed to squash the virus?
