Siem Reap one case (an Islamic man, aged 40)
PP 2 cases(Islamic men, 27 & 40)
Kampong Chhang 1 case (an Islamic man, aged 36)
Kep 3 cases (Malaysians, aged 58, 61 & 66)
Koh Kong 1 case (Islamic man, age 57)
Details to follow.
WTF!
First, Cambodia is pure and does not have it. Official.
Then, many countries are a deadly risk, but not China. Official.
Now, only Muslims get it. Official.

KR stuff.
Frankly, the latest is the most worrying to me, this has a abiltiy to cause major damage to Cambodia's cultural harmony.
Rubbish. The latest cases are all Cambodian Muslims, only because they all got infected while attending a big Muslim get-together in Malaysia.
:nono: Do watch what you say. These things are quickly repeated.(And may cause 'major damage', as you say.)

I once heard from a Philippino that he's quite sure that he has diabeties but does not want to go see the doctor.
I asked him why and he tells me because once he's diagnosed, he will have to admit that he has one and will have to pay medical bills.

Anyone think this could apply here?

or maybe scared of being forced into the Soviet hospital?

Has China not told the world of the medical achievement to the whole world at this point.
Always "hope" but never "expect".

All border crossings with Vietnam, or just the one at Trapaing Thlong in Kratie Province ?

A friend in Vietnam told me casually that the government was giving out free "vaccines" to covid patients. I said, oh what vaccine is that? "Antibiotics."

If it were a virus for this one it would be named CoVid19 of something, not 'Corona'. Corona is just a group of viruses. I smell a hoax.
