From January to June this year, Cambodia recorded about 3,339 cases of dengue fever – a downturn of about 88 percent compared to the same period last year.

The achievement was reflected in a release circulated yesterday by the Ministry of Health, underlining that 4 deaths registered during the first half of 2020.

Areas commonly found with the disease, added the release, are Phnom Penh capital and Preah Sihanouk, Pailin, Siem Reap, Kandal, Kampong Thom, Takeo, Mondulkiri, Rattanakiri, and Preah Vihear provinces.
