Cambodia sees remarkable drop in local COVID-19 cases, sharp rise in imported ones

Cambodia on Monday reported 303 new domestic COVID-19 cases, a remarkable drop from its peak of 991 cases on June 30, the Ministry of Health (MoH) said in a statement.

However, the Southeast Asian nation had seen a significant surge in imported cases, the ministry said, adding that the kingdom found 475 imported cases on Monday, sharply up from 139 at June’s end.

Authorities attributed the fall in domestic infections to higher COVID-19 vaccination rates and the increase in imported cases to importations by migrant workers returning from neighbouring Thailand.
