The Ministry of Health on Saturday confirmed 23 more imported cases of Covid-19.

Eight of the 23 – four Cambodians aged 25 to 38 and four Indonesians aged 32 to 47 – arrived from Indonesia on Thursday on two separate flights.

The ministry said the four Indonesians resided temporarily in Sihanoukville before their return. They are receiving treatment at the Chak Angre Health Centre and the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital in Phnom Penh, while their 144 fellow passengers are being quarantined in the capital.

The four Cambodians have been admitted to the Chak Angre Health Centre while their 55 fellow passengers are being isolated at the Kingdom's Air Force quarantine centre in Phnom Penh.

The other 15 are Cambodian men aged 23 to 38 who returned from Egypt and Russia on July 19 via Malaysia. They were confirmed Covid-19 positive on Friday after a third test and are receiving treatment at the Kampong Speu provincial referral hospital.

The latest cases bring the Kingdom's Covid-19 tally to 225. And with another patient having been discharged from hospital, the total active cases now stand at 82.
