The Ministry of Health has requested US$2 million to buy vaccines for influenza A(H1N1), commonly known as swine flu. Dr Sok Touch, director of the Communicable Disease Control department, said the World Bank would respond to the request in October. The ministry has also asked the World Health Organisation. “We do not have these preventative measures,” Sok Touch said. Cambodia has recorded 31 confirmed cases of swine flu thus far, with no fatalities.
