Prime Minister Hun Sen has fully recovered from his Covid-19 infection, which was detected on November 14 while on his trip to attend the G20 Summit in Indonesia.
According to a letter from Doctor Hun Chamoroeun of Calmette Hospital released on November 19, Hun Sen now has medical permission to end his self-quarantine and home treatment regimen.
“On November 19, the results of a rapid test and PCR test were consistent in their confirmation that the prime minister is now negative for Covid-19,” the letter said.
Chamroeun continued that after following ordinary procedures to treat the Covid-19 Omicron variant in someone with mild symptoms who is fully vaccinated, the prime minister is completely cured and can end his quarantine from November 19 onward.
Hun Sen came home early and missed the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia and skipped the APEC Summit in Thailand, as well as planned meetings with China’s President Xi Jinping and France’s President Emmanuel Macron.
He said the cancellation of those meetings was done for the sake of the health and safety of everyone else attending the summits, which included many other world leaders.
