PHNOM PENH, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Four more Cambodian migrant workers from Thailand confirmed positive for the COVID-19 on Sunday, bringing the total number of infected laborers from Thailand to 26 so far, said a Ministry of Health (MoH) statement.

The four, all female in their 20s, returned to Cambodia on Jan. 5 via land borders, the statement said.

"The results of their samples' tests indicated that the four women were positive for the COVID-19, and they are currently undergoing treatment at the Banteay Meanchey Provincial Referral Hospital," MoH's secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine said in the statement.

More than 6,000 Cambodian migrant workers had come back to Cambodia so far after neighboring Thailand confirmed a large-scale COVID-19 outbreak in its Samut Sakhon province last month, according to local authorities.

Since the onset of the outbreak in January last year until now, Cambodia has registered a total of 391 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with zero deaths and 371 recoveries, Vandine said. Enditem
