      Cambodia – Vaccine is hope for complete victory over the epidemic

      Vaccine is hope for complete victory over the epidemic

      According to Cambodian media reports, the World Health Organization representative in Cambodia said that according to the current progress of the vaccine trial, it is hoped that the vaccine will arrive in each country as soon as possible, and the earliest batch of vaccine donated to Cambodia is expected to arrive in March 2021, but it is not completely sure yet. It has been a year since the first cases of the new epidemic emerged in Cambodia, and the epidemic took a turn for the worse with a "city closure" and a response that flattened the curve one round after another, but in the end, it was difficult to prevent the fish from slipping through the net and importing community-transmitted infections from abroad in October. On December 8, four new cases of ZANDO and Pedro-associated infections were confirmed in Cambodia. By the morning of December 9, 354 cases have been confirmed in Cambodia, 307 cases have been cured, and 47 cases have been confirmed. The threat of the epidemic is never far from Cambodia, and the cycle of surviving a brief outbreak and falling into a new crisis is never ending. If we want to defeat the epidemic, the best hope is the vaccine, which is a powerful tool against mass epidemics.

      The pandemic, research institutions and enterprises in many countries have invested a lot of human and financial resources in the research and development of new crown vaccines, and about 11 new crown vaccines around the world are now in the final testing stage, and countries have started to purchase vaccines for their nationals. Prime Minister Hun Sen also recently announced that the vaccine will be purchased in stages for free vaccination for the nationals, and 1 million doses will be purchased in the first stage. The vaccine purchase plan has received strong support from the nation, with several well-known real estate tycoons and entrepreneurs donating money to support the government's anti-epidemic campaign. So far, the government has raised $30 million in donations. This is exciting news, but the 1 million doses of vaccine will only satisfy 500,000 people (because each person needs 2 injections). Cambodia currently has a total population of about 16 million, and further access to vaccines is needed to reach universal coverage. As the red sea of global infection maps continues to open up, more and more people are pinning their hopes on the vaccine to reach the goal of universal immunization, which we all hope for. However, there is still a waiting process before this step can be taken. To protect ourselves, we need to strictly comply with vaccination measures, wear masks, wash our hands regularly, go out less and do not gather.
