Cambodia had one of the world’s smallest coronavirus caseloads until six weeks ago, but an outbreak in late February has led to its first 22 COVID-19 deaths and a five-fold jump in cases to 2,824.

An influx of 1003 extra patients being treated for covid brings the country's hospitals to hear capacity. No wonder certain people go overseas for check ups and treatment. One wonders what would happen if there were a large natural, or not so natural disaster.
