Hundreds From Wuhan Entered Cambodia in Days Before Flight Suspensions

Some 300 passengers flew into Cambodia last week from China’s Wuhan, where a new strain of a respiratory virus that has spread to more than a dozen countries was first detected, an official said.

Cambodia received 306 passengers from Wuhan via the Sihanoukville and Siem Reap international airports from January 20 to 23, Civil Aviation Secretariat spokesman Sinn Chanserey Vutha said on Tuesday.

China suspended flights from Wuhan from January 23 in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), Chanserey Vutha told VOD. The virus has symptoms similar to influenza and has resulted in more than 100 deaths in China.
