PHNOM PENH, Nov 15, 2020, Khmer Times. Prime Minister Hun Sen, his wife and entourage returned negative test results for COVID-19 for the third time today, Khmer Times reported.

The announcement was made on his official Facebook post that said: “My wife and I, as well as my entourage all tested negative of COVID-19.”

He also said: “I hope other people who had contact with the Hungarian delegation will test negative, too. After all, we will continue to quarantine until November 18, which is our fourth and final test.”

If the risk of COVID-19 transmission is mitigated in Phnom Penh and Kandal province, it will also lead to the reopening of schools, he added.

According to the Ministry of Health, there were a total of 2,553 people exposed to the Hungarian Delegation at the “November 3 incident”. Among the contacted people, only four tested positive for COVID-19.

To avoid COVID-19 transmission in the community, the Health Ministry has strictly instructed the people concerned to quarantine for 14 days and strongly adhere to the its guidelines.
