WHO urges fast, collective actions as Cambodia races against COVID-19 variants

World Health Organization (WHO) representative to Cambodia Li Ailan has called for swift and collective actions as Cambodia is racing against COVID-19 variants.

In a statement released late on Friday, Li said the pandemic is far from over, and the numbers of daily confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths remain high in Cambodia.
