Today, Cambodia's daily case statistics remained at new "high" levels, with the number of active cases passing 4,000 for the first time in weeks.


The official daily new COVID case total for today was 653, increasing the overall number of COVID cases to 101,443.

With 17,316 instances being imported, the total number of Community Cases is now 84,127.

 

Unfortunately, a new regulation prohibiting the release of any provincial information, which appears to have taken effect late last week, has made determining the exact scope of COVID in Cambodia extremely difficult.

 

For several days, government-issued ‘Delta' numbers have also been missing.

 

Certainly, there appears to be an upward tendency in The Kingdom, as shown in the graph below (please notice that results are two days behind):

 

The announcement that Prime Minister Hun Sen has launched an emergency vaccination program for children aged 6 to 12 will bolster prospects for the reopening of primary schools – and a return to ‘normalcy' for Cambodia, which has already been strengthened by the reopening of numerous secondary schools today.

 

The PM also stated that children between 3 to 6 years old will be vaccinated.

 

However, troubling news broke today that at least one unlicensed clinic in Phnom Penh was selling COVID vaccinations illegally, undermining the Royal Government's heroic efforts to vaccinate Cambodians and foreigners fairly and equally.

 

Today, 130 imported cases were declared, as the number of imported cases continues to rise as a result of the Thai border reopening on August 13th.

 

Cambodia also revealed 9 more deaths, increasing the total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Cambodia to 2067.

 

New cases exceeded recoveries today, with 463 new recoveries announced, bringing the total number of active cases to 4002.
