Cambodia turns to China for Covid-19 vaccines

Cambodia is gearing up for mass inoculations against the Covid-19 virus, with China providing the first million doses while India has been asked to bolster future supplies and Australia has promised “safe and effective” access to vaccines.

The broad plan is to vaccinate 10 million Cambodians out of a population of 16 million and Prime Minister Hun Sen said he would be the first to be inoculated once the first vaccines are delivered from China. Access to the vaccines will be free and voluntary.

Confirmed Covid-19 cases in Cambodia have been small compared with elsewhere, with just 441 people infected with the virus, 386 recoveries and no deaths as of Jan. 19.
