For the sixth day in a row, Cambodia's active daily case numbers surged as three provinces reported figures in excess of 100 cases, with one province, Kampong Cham, reporting a staggering 350 new cases.


The official daily new COVID case total for today was 491, increasing the overall number of COVID cases to 94,417.

 

With 15,509 instances being imported, the total number of Community Cases is now 78,908.

 

Today, 165 imported cases were declared, as the number of imported cases continues to rise as a result of the Thai border reopening on August 13th.

 

Individual case totals continue to be high, with Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, and Oddar Meanchey provinces all reporting daily case totals of over 100 cases.

 

However, officials in Kampong Cham appear to have been the hardest hit, with 282 homes being blocked after more than 350 Covid-19 cases were detected.

 

Unfortunately, the lack of official daily case data from Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, and many other provinces makes assessing the true situation of COVID in Cambodia difficult.

 

Provincial figures appeared to be well in excess of the national figure once again, with the four provinces listed above reporting daily totals of over 650 instances.

 

Governor Khuong Sreng of Phnom Penh, on the other hand, expressed hope, stating that the COVID-19 situation in Phnom Penh has greatly improved in the previous two to three weeks, which is a promising sign that the city will return to normal – both in terms of tourism and school reopening.

 

The Governor also announced the formation of a working group to assess the feasibility of reopening all of the capital's educational institutions.

 

Cambodia also revealed 9 more deaths, increasing the total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Cambodia to 1,937.

 

New cases surpassed recoveries today, with 397 new recoveries announced, bringing the total number of active cases to 2,576.
