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.

Cambodia detected two more cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) – all imported – bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the Kingdom to 280.

According to a press release of the Ministry of Health issued this morning, the two new patients are a 27-year-old French national coming from France via Singapore, and a 34-year-old Indian woman coming from India.

Where are these people getting covid, second test?
Negative before flying negative on arrival?
Dirty airport, dirty hotel quarantine waiting first test results?

Perhaps do a little research into the PCR test, and you will have your answer.

Probably caught the virus months ago and the second test is picking up the antibodys, it's just hit and miss which test will show up positive

PCR test used here doesn't check for antibodies.
