UPDATE: Ministry of Health spokeswoman confirmed that Cambodian authorities were looking for a tuk-tuk driver who had been driving the Japanese man.

She said authorities will be looking at roadside security cameras. During the meeting, she mentioned that the Japanese man had taken a three-wheeler for a medical examination at a private hospital in Siem Reap.

The owner of the (unnamed) private hospital, which was also summoned to attend the meeting, told Ms. Vandin that when the man was examined, his fever exceeded 37 ┬░ C and he had a cough. He described that he seemed to suspect that the man had been infected with COVID-19 and had (*recommended he?) contacted Siem Reap Referral Hospital for further examination.

She blames the owner of the private hospital for being negligent by not keeping the Japanese man in his place and not contacting the Ministry of Health and not trying to contact Siem Reap Referral Hospital but instead sent the patient away. The owner of the private hospital could face legal action, she stressed.
