Phnom Penh (FN), Jul. 30 – A 36-year-old Cambodian-American woman Vira Rose, who fled the facility where she was under 14-day quarantine, has been tested negative of Covid-19 after being re-examined and re-quarantine, Kampong Cham Governor Un Chanda told Fresh News on Thursday.
The woman will be discharged from the quarantine facility at 11 a.m today, 30 July, said Health Ministry Spokeswoman Or Vandine.
It is worth recalling that Vira Rose arrived in Cambodia on July 15 on the flight on which two American diplomats tested positive for Covid-19 upon arrival in the Kingdom. Vira and the other 88 passengers who were not carrying the coronavirus went into mandatory 14-day quarantine in a hotel in Phnom Penh. However, Vira escaped from her room around midnight after sneaking into the officials’ office to take her passport back, according to a security camera footage.
Later, the authorities have found her in a guesthouse in Kampong Cham town, and put her in a quarantine again.
To date, Cambodia has confirmed 234 cases of Covid-19. So far, 162 have recovered.
