Cambodia records 2 new local COVID-19 infections

Cambodia’s Ministry of Health announced in a statement on Thursday that two more people tested positive for COVID-19, raising the total number of infected people in the first-ever community transmission to 19.

The first community transmission was detected on Saturday after a local family of six people, who reside in both capital Phnom Penh and northwest Siem Reap province, confirmed positive for the virus, as the origin of their infection was still unknown.

The new patients include a 23-year-old Cambodian man, who works for a bank on Monivong Boulevard and his 21-year-old sister, who works for another bank on Samdach Pan Avenue in central Phnom Penh, the statement said.
