Banteay Meanchey reported one of the highest numbers of daily cases since the reopening of the borders. The provincial administration reported the discovery of 181 new cases in September 7.
As the days go on, Banteay Meanchey’s daily Covid-19 case rate show no sign of slowing down, as cases continue to grow from the influx of returning Cambodians and growing community cases. As the main entry point for returnees Banteay Meanchey receives a large bulk of Cambodians from Thailand and consequentially a large bulk of imported cases.
Despite lack of reports on the total number of imported cases in the province, the large number of daily cases reported in the province are imported putting Banteay Meanchey at the forefront of the provinces with the highest number of imported cases. While imported case rate has begun to decline in other major border provinces, like Oddar Meanchey and Battambang, Banteay Meanchey’s continue to rise further.
