ANN/PHNOM PENH POST – The Cambodian Ministry of Health yesterday reported zero new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths. It has been the case for over a week now.
As of yesterday, Cambodia had recorded 136,262 COVID-19 cases with 133,206 recoveries and 3,056 fatalities.
Thanks to the skilful leadership of the head of the government, as well as efforts to vaccinate citizens across the country with the “Blossom Strategy”, Cambodia was able to re-open the country and return to normal life on November 1, 2021, said Ministry of Health secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine, who also serves as head of the national COVID-19 vaccination committee.
The COVID-19 vaccination campaign reached over 100 per cent of the target population of 10 million people and more than 88 per cent of the total population of 16 million people in Cambodia, with the government currently carrying out the third, fourth and fifth dose campaigns.
With the success of the vaccination programme, Vandine published a book titled Over 25,000 Kilometres travelled: Mission Impossible Became Mission Successfully Accomplished in the name of Samdech Prime Minister.
The book is the strategy for the Covid-19 vaccination process in Cambodia.
It was initiated by Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, after he established the Commission for the COVID-19 Vaccination in the National Framework in mid-March 2021.
