Phnom Penh/Xinhua/UNI: The first and only novel coronavirus patient in Cambodia has fully recovered and will be discharged from the hospital on Monday, said a news release from the Health Ministry's Communicable Disease Control Department (CDCD) on Sunday.

The patient, a 60-year-old Chinese man from the central Chinese city of Wuhan, was Cambodia's first and only confirmed case of novel coronavirus pneumonia. He has tested negative for the virus three times.

"The coronavirus patient has completely recovered and will be allowed to leave the hospital on Monday, Feb. 10," said a CDCD news release posted on its official Facebook page.

The man tested positive for the virus on Jan. 27. He, along with his three family members, had arrived in southwest Preah Sihanouk Province on Jan. 23 and stayed at a hotel after he developed symptoms on Jan. 25.

All his three family members had not been infected with the virus.

According to the CDCD, so far, there have been no new confirmed case of the virus in the Southeast Asian country.
