The Ministry of Health (MOH} of the  Kingdom of Cambodia and  the Worl.d Health Organization  (WHO) wish to inform the public that currently, there is no case related to the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Corona virus (MERS-CoV) infections and the Ebola Virus Disease have been detected in Cambodia, so far.

1. MERS-CoV is a novel coronavirus that causes acute respiratory illness in infected patients. The  virus was first reported by the WHO in 2012, and thus far all  cases worldwide remained associated  with the Arabian Peninsula. The risk of a MERS-CoV outbreak in Cambodia remains low as sustained human-to-human transmission of the virus has not been reported.

The  MOH's  Department  of  Communicable  Disease  Control  has,  since  2013,  been conducting MERS-CoV dissemination workshops in close collaboration with religious leaders, for communities at risk, that cover actions that should be undertaken by pilgrims betore, during and after their Hajj and Umrah pilgrhnages to the Middle East. There is currently no advisory against travel to countries of the Arabian Peninsula, or to countries reporting imported cases of MERS-CoV.
