Cambodia will expand the rapid test, not limited to the Ministry of Health, so as to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
Private companies will be allowed to conduct rapid test on their staff, explained Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen in his televised statement on the current COVID-19 situation in Cambodia this morning.
“The faster the detection of COVID-19, the faster and more effective the prevention of the spread of this virus,” he said.
“Rapid test is one of the strategies for COVID-19 management in Cambodia,” he underlined.
According to Samdech Techo Hun Sen, Cambodia has in total around 1.4 million rapid test kits in the Ministry of Health’s stock and 1 million more will arrive soon, and the private companies can order the kits to test their workers.
Samdech Techo Prime Minister said health practitioners have to train selected staff or workers on how to use the rapid test kits.
