Holland America Cruise Ship to Dock at Sihanoukville

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Cambodian authorities called on Malaysia to review its test results.

What I worry is that some people might just have lied on the symptoms just not the get hospitalized here and due to general peer pressure as they didn't want to be the person that caused everyone to get locked into the ship.


Where are the rest of the passengers currently???

I'm following a lady on Twitter who was a passenger. She is in a hotel in PP along with a few hundred more and sight seeing around the area. A couple hundred have already flown out of the country. And about 400 are still on the ship and have been blocked from disembarking since the positive result in Malaysia.

The ship was believed to be free of the virus but an 83-year-old American woman from it tested positive upon arriving in Malaysia, authorities there said, adding that a second test, at the request of the cruise operator, confirmed the finding.

for those that still think the cambodian goverment is tellng the truth to ya...
welllll.
While we witnessed the usual denial in Cambodia:
"Health Ministry asks Malaysia to re-test specimens of US woman from MS Westerdam confirmed positive for coronavirus",

Malaysia has apparently not only confirmed in a second test the result, but also closed it's borders for the remaining Westerdam passengers in an understandable reaction to this embarrassing incompetency.
"Malaysia said it won’t allow any more passengers from the Westerdam cruise ship to enter the country from Cambodia, after an American woman who flew into Kuala Lumpur was diagnosed."
