According to Cambodian officials, more than 3,000 Chinese citizens from Wuhan city have come to Cambodia since the outbreak of 2019-nCoV-caused acute respiratory disease in China. They arrived in Cambodia before Chinese authorities decided to close Wuhan city on January 23 in order to prevent the disease from spreading.
