Phnom Penh (FN), May 18 –  The Ministry of Health, on Monday, issued a statement decrying the Vietnam News’ publication on 16 May 2020 saying a Vietnamese man leaving Cambodia was infected with Covid-19.

The Ministry of Health of Cambodia and the authorities in Siem Reap have searched carefully and urgently, but there is no such Vietnamese name published in the Vietnamese news.
