Despite higher reported provincial data, Cambodia's daily case totals have dropped again.

Recommended Posts

Despite substantially higher provincial numbers being reported – especially from Banteay Meanchey province – official daily COVID case statistics were once again far lower than predicted, indicating that case numbers may soon be significantly higher.



Cambodia revealed today that 519 new instances were reported on a daily basis, bringing the total number of COVID cases to 88,242.


There are presently 74,438 Community Instances, with 13,804 cases being imported.


Today, 185 imported cases were disclosed, as the number of imported cases continues to rise as a result of the Thai border reopening last week.


The number of cases in the provinces continues to climb, demonstrating that the provinces – particularly the eight provinces bordering Thailand – are at the forefront of Cambodia's fight against COVID.


The news that, in addition to the 601 COVID cases found at a drug addiction treatment center in the province yesterday, another 314 cases were also found in the province – indicating that a major surge of new cases is on the way – indicates that Banteay Meanchey province is currently experiencing a ‘surge' in COVID cases.


Last night, Prime Minister Hun Sen announced the end of the nationwide campaign to tighten measures against COVID-19, as well as the end of the 21-day curfew imposed on the capital by Phnom Penh City Hall.


With news that another region of Phnom Penh has been locked down owing to a suspected ‘Delta' infection, it remains to be seen whether the relaxation of restrictions would have a negative impact on the Kingdom's COVID situation.


Cambodia also revealed 15 further deaths, bringing the total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Cambodia to 1762.


Recoveries outperformed new cases Monday, with 553 fresh recoveries announced – a smaller margin than in the previous two weeks – bringing the total number of active cases to 2,622.
