Health Ministry Rejects Vietnam’s News Reports on Imported COVID-19 Cases from Cambodia

Cambodia’s Ministry of Health has denied the news report published by VN Express saying that three Vietnamese nationals had been tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from Cambodia.

The rejection was made yesterday evening by H.E. Mrs. Or Vandine, Spokesperson and Secretary of State at the Ministry of Health, stressing that this is a false news.

“For this case, they [the three Vietnamese nationals] could be infected with the virus in Vietnam,” added the spokesperson.
