Cambodia is now on its sixth day of ‘new low' cases.

Recommended Posts



Cambodia observed the 6th day of huge declines in new cases today, after 7 days of daily new case counts above 800 cases per day.

The official daily new COVID case total for today was 221, increasing the overall number of COVID cases to 113,924.


There are presently 94,779 Community Instances, with 19,145 cases being imported.


Today, 9 imported cases were announced while the number of imported cases seemed to be dwindling.


Cambodia also revealed 13 further deaths, increasing the total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Cambodia to 2431.


According to Khmer Times, two-thirds of the 2,418 people who died from COVID-19 up to yesterday were apparently unvaccinated.


The Deputy Governor of Siem Reap was the first to expose this, stating that many of individuals who died from COVID-19 in the province were unvaccinated.


Recoveries outnumbered new cases today, with 443 new recoveries announced, bringing the total number of active cases to 5,693.


This sharp decline in reported cases is linked to a new strategy of limited COVID-19 fast testing, which is the first step in moving the COVID-19 issue from pandemic to endemic status.


However, this new strategy has drastically lowered the number of reported cases, making it difficult to determine the exact extent of COVID in Cambodia, especially when combined with the current policy of not providing any provincial numbers.


Certainly, there was a general upwards tendency in The Kingdom – however, as seen in the graph (please note that results may be up to two days behind) below, the previous six days' results have completely reversed this upwards trend:


However, observers are concerned that the Pchum Benh celebrations will result in a resurgence of COVID data.


To avoid a reappearance of COVID, Prime Minister Hun Sen has advised Pchum Ben visitors to follow health rules.


Cambodians are counting on the Royal Government's immunization campaign, dubbed the "Cambodian vaccination miracle," to succeed, as shown in the graph below.


Cambodia not only has a considerably higher vaccination rate than Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam, but it has also surpassed practically every major country in the globe, including China, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Germany.


The Governor of Phnom Penh has issued instructions on the mandatory presentation of COVID-19 vaccination cards or certificates when entering and leaving educational institutions, markets, and business locations in Phnom Penh, as a sign of the importance of vaccination in enabling a return to normalcy.
