PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodia on Friday (July 24) confirmed four new imported Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number of infections in the kingdom to 202, said a Health Ministry's press statement.

The new cases were detected on four Cambodian peacekeepers, including a female, who returned to Cambodia on July 10 from the war-torn West African nation of Mali, the statement said.

It added that they are among a group of 80 returned peacekeepers, who have gone into a 14-day quarantine at the Training School for Multinational Peacekeeping Forces in western Kampong Speu province after they were first tested negative for the virus upon their arrival.

"On the 13th day of their quarantine, the group was tested for the Covid-19 for the second time, and the test results released on Thursday indicated that four of them turned out to be positive for the virus," the statement said.

The four new patients have been admitted to designated hospitals in capital Phnom Penh for treatment, it added.

Cambodia has so far recorded a total of 202 confirmed Covid-19 cases, with 142 patients cured and 60 still in hospital.
