Health officials in Cambodia have asked Malaysia to re-examines the positive coronavirus test results of an American traveler who was on board the Westerdam cruise ship.
The request was made by the Cambodian Ministry of Health shortly after Malaysian health authorities confirmed the case, according to Cambodian state media.
The Westerdam docked in Cambodia late last week after it was turned away from several other ports in Asia due to fears of the coronavirus, because the ship had docked in Hong Kong.
State media initially reported that all passengers and crew on board the Westerdam underwent temperature checks and "not one person had an elevated temperature." Health examinations conducted on the Westerdam passengers followed the international health regulations of the World Health Organization, according to state media.
As of February 15, Cambodia had one confirmed case of the novel coronavirus.
