Phnom Penh (FN), May 4 – Two Cambodian peacekeepers have recovered from Covid-19, while another patient is undergoing intensive care from regional doctors.

General Sem Sovanney, director-general of the National Center for Peacekeeping, Mine and ERW Clearance, told Fresh News Monday morning that he had received an email from the UN mission reporting that two Cambodian forces were in good health and the other continued to receive treatment from the medical team.

General Sem Sovanney appreciated the cooperation between Cambodian and United Nations medical teams for their professionalism and spirit in combating Covid-19 pandemic.

It is worth noting that at least three Cambodian peacekeepers in Mali were tested positive of Covid-19 on 24 April 2020. They were sent to a hospital in Bamako under intensive care and treatment by the UN medical team.

Today, the Kingdom has deployed 800 peacekeepers, 80 female, to Lebanon, South Sudan, Mali and the Central African Republic, working as gendarmeries, observers, and staff in the fields of demining, construction, and airport engineering.
