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.

The spots identified are: N8 nightclub near the Olympic stadium, Casa Meridian, Le Gong Guan Hotel, City Comfort Hotel, The Bridge, The Point Service Apartments, Yi Lu Xian restaurant, 18E Mekong street, Pent House Apartment, Sky Line (Dumex), Somet Condominium, Residence L Olympic and Prince Plaza Centre.

A bulk of the 32 COVID-19 positive cases had lived or frequented these places. The four escapes from quarantine from Sokha had reportedly been hopping from one apartment to another.
Wait, the City Comfort Hotel is another quarantine hotel. Why would people from the Sokha outbreak be going there?
visit friends?

This has the potential to close us down in a way not seen here yet.
Not much has been happening over the last year, why would it change now? Because of the mutations? Those didn't change much in other countries, despite all the doom predicted.

Face it, they accidentally tested someone positive. Probably an asymptomatic person because only an idiot would go for a test in Cambodia while being symptomatic. Once you test positive you're name is all over the news and the web.
The authorities responded, started lifting tiles, closed buildings, came up with a story about 4 Chinese doing a runner from quarantine, and they found 32 + 19 cases.

My guess is if they would have done the same two weeks ago they would have found the same result. You only see things when you look at them.

Covid is in Cambodia, and it has been and it is spreading. But it's at such a low level in the grand scheme of things it's no big thing. So far. And I don't see any reason why that would change because of this finding.
yeah i hope this gets brushed under the carpet quickly like it did last time
They will. The last thing the current government needs is social unrest over the corona virus. So far so good.

Err, no, but I was out on Friday in a nice (and busy) restaurant and then one of the better skybars, and they do get a few Chinese in both those places. That's why I am keeping a very close eye on the venues being listed.
