Information on Coronavirus in Cambodia from 8 March 2020 (Latest Updates)

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.

Some villages aren’t waiting for the Province or Sangkat or Commune to close their borders.

Anyone who isn’t a local villager is a foreigner. Doesn’t matter if you are Khmer or not.

“I asked for an arrest warrant but he said that he is the prosecutor. He confiscated three phones which belong to me and my parents. Then, he wrote a letter regarding the confiscation.

“He said if I do not allow him to check the house, he would further sue my family as he had already had an arrest warrant,” she said....

The ministry’s annoucement said: “Teaching extra classes is banned in the period of fighting against Covid-19 infections. The ministry will take action against offenders.”
I think this deserves a separate thread. This isn’t really directly related to the coronavirus.

ACE will be starting the next term with on-line classes starting on Wednesday. No official notice of shut down yet.

I found it interesting that the prosecutor was able to write his own search warrant on the scene and then further write his own arrest warrant, also on location.

Could a lawyer (or wanna be one) enlighten me on the Cambodian legal code? I always thought that judges had to write orders for searches and arrest warrants? Or at least had to sign and approve them.

At least Cambodia is civilised enough for the judge not needing to be an executioner too.

Dr Didier Raoult, one of the first to publish some results regarding successful Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycine treatment, has now submitted an additional study, this time with 80 patients duplicating the results.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

An extract. Looks very promising.
Abstract

We need an effective treatment to cure COVID-19 patients and to decrease the virus carriage duration. In 80 in-patients receiving a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin we noted a clinical improvement in all but one 86 year-old patient who died, and one 74 year-old patient still in intensive care unit. A rapid fall of nasopharyngeal viral load tested by qPCR was noted, with 83% negative at Day7, and 93% at Day8. Virus cultures from patient respiratory samples were negative in 97.5% patients at Day5. This allowed patients to rapidly de discharge from highly contagious wards with a mean length of stay of five days. We believe other teams should urgently evaluate this cost-effective therapeutic strategy, to both avoid the spread of the disease and treat patients as soon as possible before severe respiratory irreversible complications take hold.

Another important note is the patients' rapid recovery and discharge, which means freeing up valuable ICU and ventilator time:
Length of stay in the ID ward
Of the 65 patients who were discharged from the ID ward during the study period, the mean time from initiation to discharge was 4.1 days with a mean length of stay of 4.6 days.
