TOP NEWS: Health Minister Says a 38-year-old Cambodian Infected with Covid-19, Transmitted from the Japanese Man
07/03/20 19:30
Phnom Penh (FN), Mar. 7 – Cambodian Health Minister Mam Bun Heng confirmed Saturday that Cambodia has a new case of Covid-19, found on a 38-year-old Cambodian man.

The minister said at the press conference on Saturday evening at the Ministry of Health.

The new case was found after the Ministry of Health quarantined four people in Siem Reap province who had been in contacts with the Japanese man infected with Covid-19. The other three were tested negative.

On 4 March, a Japanese man at his 40s was tested positive with Covid-19 up on arrival in Japan after taking flight from Siem Reap province in Cambodia via Vietnam, reported Kyodo News.

He finally admits the virus is in Cambodia and promptly shuts down the schools;
Prime Minister HE has ordered all schools in Siem Reap town closed with immediate effect.

He also ordered the cancellation of the Angkor Sangkran festival planned in conjunction with Khmer New Year in mid-April.

This comes after Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng confirmed that a 38-year-old Cambodian man tested positive for Covid19.

The victim had direct contact with the 40-year-old Japanese man who had contracted the virus earlier this week.

LINK RE VIRUS STRAINS:

Two separate types of the novel coronavirus — one more aggressive than the other — could be infecting people during the sweeping outbreak, Chinese scientists revealed in a new study.

The preliminary study, conducted by researchers from Peking University’s School of Life Sciences and the Institute Pasteur of Shanghai under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, revealed that the infection has evolved into two major types, designated L and S.
Sorry, but I don't trust ANYTHING coming out of China now! I smell a coverup.

"China's Epidemic of Lies"

Get ready... China is planning to deny it originated in China

...on Wednesday, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian claimed that “confirmed cases of #COVID19 were first found in China, but its origin is not necessarily in China” and that “We are still tracing the origin”. [emphasis added]

On the same day China Daily tweeted that:
The Huanan Seafood Market is undergoing cleaning and disinfection work in #Wuhan, #China. The wet market was once believed to be the origin of the novel #coronavirus. [emphasis added]

A short read, worth 2 minutes of your time.
