Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen this morning said Cambodia’s health sector is claimed to be weak, but in reality, Cambodia can and should be proud of its achievements.
Addressing to the inauguration ceremony of Cambodia-China Friendship Thbong Khmum Hospital in Thbong Khmum provincial city, the Cambodian Premier underlined that not many countries believe that Cambodia can win over the COVID-19 pandemic because its health system is still weak, but in the end, Cambodia has become one of the nations in the world that has successfully contained and prevented the COVID-19.
During the COVID-19 peak periods, some nations faced the lack of oxygen, but it was not the case for Cambodia, he said, continuing that the newly-built Cambodia-China Friendship Thbong Khmum Hospital has full capacity to produce oxygen for its own operation and can contribute to some referral hospitals in the province and other neighbouring provinces.
Besides, Samdech Techo Prime Minister highlighted the success of Cambodia in eradicating polio since 2000 and in reducing malaria outbreaks in the past decade.
