Cambodia sees 39 community-linked Covid-19 cases

Cambodia confirmed one more local Covid-19 case, bringing the total number of infected people linked to the first-ever community transmission to 39, said a Ministry of Health (MoH)’s statement on Thursday (Dec 10).

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

The new positive case was found Wednesday on a 37-year-old man, who took a test after visiting a clothing store branch in the capital, where five people had recently been tested positive for the virus since they went to the store during the Black Friday event on Nov 27, the statement said.
