Omicron is spreading like wildfire across Cambodia.

“Before Omicron variant came into the country, we were confident of shifting the Covid-19 pandemic to endemic. We were almost there and now it looks bleak due to the Omicron spreading rapidly and another new stealth circulating in other countries,” Ministry of Health spokesman Hok Kim Cheng said

He pointed out BA.1.1, BA.1, BA.2. BA.3, or even BA.2.2 that are reported in Cambodia are all classified under the Omicron umbrella unless the variant like Deltacron that will be classified like another variant.
