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

It would be very useful to know how many locations were involved. If the vast majority are concentrated in just the three locations - Orussey market and the two clothing factories, then that’s better than if they were spread over many locations.

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

Looks like we are fucked now unless they hurry up vaccination. Why? The curfews and ban on inter-province travel will help a lot, plus most of the population is scared and staying home as much as possible. And the tracing teams are still working hard. So the spread will be slowed. But yes even at 1...

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

It seems certain some of the blood clots are caused by the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Every single medicine has side effects. Even paracetamol. But the frequency of these side effects is dwarfed by the risk of severe illness and death from the actual virus itself. The risk of dying from blood clots cause...

Re: Does anyone know if we can get one of the vaccines?

Whilst I agree that it would be easy for the embassies to compile lists of their citizens who want to be vaccinated, the Cambodian government ALREADY has this list in effect, from their online vaccine registration system. Whilst the system is all in Khmer, it is definitely recording foreigner regis...

Re: Covid-19 VACCINE News

Also, that card isn't going to impress any immigration officers anywhere in the world. If Thailand opens up to tourists with, inter alia, proof of vaccination, that card isn't going to cut the mustard. That’s the back of the card. The front is much more official looking with ID/passport number, and...

Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak - News and Discussion

Yes. Because antibodies take time to develop. You need at least four weeks after first vaccination to develop any protection, and preferably have the second dose as well for added protection.
And even then the real-world efficacy is about 85%, not 100%.

Re: Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak - News and Discussion

Perhaps not, but given the British variant has become so dominant globally it might test to breaking point Cambodia's efforts up until now. It is more contagious and virulent. It was just odd that it was mentioned once and then silence. Yes it is a bit odd. Maybe once they’d established it was here...
