Cambodia Reports Two New COVID-19 Cases; Siem Reap Residents Test Positive

The Cambodian government confirmed Tuesday morning two new coronavirus cases in Siem Reap province, bringing the country’s tally to 109, with the new cases linked to the religious gathering in Malaysia late February.

Tuesday morning, the Ministry of Health announced that two more Cambodians in Siem Reap town had been diagnosed with the virus, bringing the national tally to 109. The two confirmed cases, a mother and her son, are related to a man who had returned from a religious congregation in Malaysia earlier this month, which has been the source of hundreds of other cases.

The ministry added that 23 people had recovered from the disease as of Tuesday morning.
