Phnom Penh: The Ministry of Health issued the daily press release on the morning of October 3, 2021, confirming the discovery of 199 new positive cases of COVID-19 and 490 cases that were treated and the patients discharged. Despite the sudden drop in new cases (apparently due to rapid test kit results no longer being counted- only PCR) another 23 deaths were reported.
At least 44 cases were reportedly imported, mostly from Thailand, with the other 155 classed as local infections.
This brings the total number of cases to around 113,256 cases with 104,408 cases treated. The death toll has risen to by another 23 to 2,383.
