The Ministry of Health on Friday confirmed five new cases of Covid-19.

Three of the five ‒ a 34-year-old man, his five-year-old son and a 60-year-old woman ‒ are Cambodians who returned from the US via Taiwan on Wednesday .

The other two are senior US embassy officials who arrived in Cambodia from the US on a separate flight via South Korea on the same day.

The ministry said the US diplomats are being quarantined at the embassy, while the three Cambodians are receiving treatment at the Chak Angre Krom Health Centre in Phnom Penh's Meanchey district.

The latest cases bring Cambodia's Covid-19 tally to 171 ‒ 42 women and 129 men ‒ all of which are imported.

Of the total, 133 have been discharged from hospitals.
