COVID-19 has now reached 90,000 cases in Cambodia. Despite the high provincial figures, daily official case totals remained low.

Cambodia reported 466 additional cases each day today, bringing the total number of COVID cases to 90,107.

 

With 14,395 instances being imported, the total number of Community Cases is now 75,712.

 

Today, 94 imported cases were disclosed, as the number of imported cases continues to rise as a result of the Thai border reopening last week.

 

Despite low official national data, provincial and ‘Delta' instances continue to climb, and provinces – particularly the eight provinces bordering Thailand – are at the forefront of Cambodia's campaign against COVID.

 

The provincial data continue to be a source of consternation, with individual provincial totals appearing to differ from the national totals released on a regular basis.

 

A simple addition of the province statistics yields a daily amount that is far greater than the official national total.

 

The province of Banteay Meanchey, in particular, is suffering a ‘surge' in COVID cases, with 199 instances reported today, prompting the province to proclaim a number of ‘Red Zones.'

 

The new ‘Delta' variation continues to create concern, with 163 new cases reported over the weekend, increasing the total number of ‘Delta' cases to close to 1,000.

 

Following numerous incidences such as the arrest of 101 people for violating rules at a Phnom Penh restaurant, analysts are worrying whether the Kingdom would soon reintroduce more extreme restrictions.

 

Cambodia also revealed 13 further deaths, bringing the total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Cambodia to 1821.

 

Recoveries exceeded new cases Monday, with 512 new recoveries announced — a lesser margin than in recent weeks – bringing the total number of current cases to 2,149.
