Twenty-two more fatalities had been registered, bringing the overall death toll to 1,442, the ministry said, adding that 763 other patients had recovered, taking the total number of recoveries to 71,517.
Cambodia on Monday also reported 109 new cases of the Delta COVID-19 variant, raising the kingdom's total number of the Delta variant cases to 223.
On July 31 and Aug. 1, laboratory testing by the Pasteur Institute in Cambodia detected new Covid-19 variant B.1.617-2 (Delta) on 109 patients, the MoH said in a statement.
MoH's secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine called for greater participation from individuals to stem the spread of Covid-19 and its variants.
"We must act responsibly together now if we do not want to go through a public health disaster later on," she said on social media.
World Health Organisation (WHO) representative to Cambodia Li Ailan said both Alpha and Delta variants had been detected in Cambodia, urging people to strictly comply with health measures.
"It is our new challenge. Be aware that the good combined public health and social measures, if well implemented with good compliance, are effective in suppressing transmission," she wrote on Twitter.
The South-East Asian nation launched a Covid-19 vaccination drive on Feb 10, aiming at inoculating 12 million people -- 10 million adults and 2 million adolescents, or 75 percent of its 16 million population by November.
As of Sunday, some 7.38 million people, or 46.16 percent of Cambodia's total population had received at least one vaccine dose, the MoH said. Enditem

Meanwhile, the confirmed Delta variant cases were found in capital Phnom Penh and nine provinces, namely Oddar Meanchey, Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Pailin, Siem Reap, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Tboung Khmum, and Prey Veng, it said, adding that most of the patients were laborers returning from neighboring Thailand.
"The results show that the Delta variant has been spreading in our community," Vandine said in the statement.
She called on the people to comply with health measures as the Delta variant was more transmissible than previously circulating strains.
"People who are required to undergo a quarantine must strictly abide by the rules in order to prevent large-scale community transmission," Vandine said. - Xinhua
