PHNOM PENH -- Prime Minister Hun Sen said Sunday that there was no case of the Wuhan corona virus in Cambodia.

“Until now, the corona virus has not spread to Cambodia,” he said in a statement on Facebook. 

“To prevent this deadly virus, the Ministry of Health has installed 24-hour scanning machines to monitor any tourists arriving in Cambodia,” he added.   

According to the ministry, more than 2,000 medical professionals have been set up to treat people who might have been infected.

Medical facilities have been assigned to treat those carrying the virus and laboratories put on alert.

Hun Sen also urged people to stay vigilant when traveling abroad, especially to countries where the virus has been detected.

Ministry of Health spokesman Or Vandine said Sunday that the ministry would take legal action against Facebook users who spread false information.

For more information on the Wuhan virus, people may call the Health Hotline at 115. Anyone experiencing symptoms may go to the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital on Street 271 in Phnom Penh.
