Cambodia reports 1 more case of COVID-19 community transmission

Cambodia confirmed one more local COVID-19 case, raising the total number of infected people linked to the first-ever community transmission to 40, its Ministry of Health (MoH) said in a statement on Friday.

The first community outbreak was detected on Nov. 28 after six people of a family, who reside in both the capital Phnom Penh and the northwestern Siem Reap province, tested positive for the coronavirus, as the origin of their infection has not yet been identified.

The new confirmed case was found Thursday in a 26-year-old woman living in Phnom Penh’s Doun Penh district, the statement said, adding that she had direct contact with a man, who contracted the virus while shopping in the capital on Nov. 27.
