Cambodia sees 70 pct drop in malaria cases in H1, 2020

Cambodia reported 4,540 cases of malaria in the first half of 2020, a 70 percent drop from 15,165 over the same period last year, Health Minister Mam Bunheng said on Wednesday.

“Cambodia has seen no death from malaria since 2018, meaning that the country has achieved zero death from malaria three years earlier than the target,” he said in a press release.

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease, which is often found in rainy seasons and mostly happens in forest and mountainous provinces.
