This is a survey study. The study's aim was to explore the incidence of COVID-19 along the ThaiCambodian border (Sa Kaeo Province). The study relies on secondary research-related data on institutions linked with the Ministry of Public Health. The study was conducted within Thailand's Sa Kaeo Province. The study relied on data on the number of COVID-19 patients and the epidemic situation in all districts of Sa Kaeo Province throughout five waves. The data in this study was examined using frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation, as well as a Geographic Information System (GIS) program. The studies indicated that Sa Kaeo province is at high risk of contracting COVID-19. More than 1,000 cases have been recorded in Watthana Nakhon and Khok Sung districts. The districts of Muang Sa Kaeo, Khao Chakan, and Aranyaprathet were next, with 501-1,000 cases. The districts of Wang Nam Yen, Wang Somboon, Khlong Hat, and Ta Phraya had the fewest occurrences (less than 500). The people who are more probably to contract COVID-19. More than 1,000 cases were reported in Wang Nam Yen, WatthanaNakhon, and Aranyaprathet districts (1,832 cases, 1,415 cases, and 1,042 cases, respectively). MuangSaKaeo, KhaoChakan, Khlong Hat, Khok Sung, and Ta Phraya districts were next, with 501-1,000 cases. While the Wang Somboon district had the lowest number of incidents (less than 500). COVID-19 patients were being isolated at home in Sa Kaeo Province, according to the investigation. More than 2,000 cases have been verified in WatthanaNakhon, Wang Nam Yen, and Khok Sung districts (3,105 cases, 2,413 cases, and 2,139 cases, respectively). MuangSaKaeo, KhaoChakan, and Aranyaprathet districts were next, each with 1,000-2,000 cases. The districts of Wang Somboon, Khlong Hat, and Ta Phraya had the fewest incidences (less than 500). As a result, an early and efficient COVID-19 surveillance, control, and prevention policy and guidelines are necessary. Establish a border screening system that is efficient and has a sufficient number of specialists to handle it. In the event of an uncontrolled COVID-19 pandemic, strong policies such as border closures among both Thailand and Cambodia are implemented in accordance with epidemiological or WHO recommendations.
