Chinese Man Dies of Wind in Bavet SEZ

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.

Kjal is just shorthand for cardio/respiratory failure of which there are several words that compound with kjal "wind" or better, "respiration" when used in a medical context.

There are quite a few medical terms that don’t have a Khmer translation. Or a Khmer word or idea that encompasses a broad range of diagnoses. And CEO gets its news from the local sites.

Which makes it very confusing explaining medicine to the locals.

Or so I’m told.

For medical professionals to explain things well, they need to use another language, usually English. Khmer does have a lot of medical terms, but not as many as English.

The police who report on deaths, dont have an in depth understanding of medical conditions.

Maybe he was blown off a mountain top. Honestly, I've never met a Khmer who doesn't know the local word for "breathe" or "lung" but I can understand them using the word ""wind"" (double quotations).

More importantly though, RIP
