Information on Coronavirus in Cambodia from 8 March 2020 (Latest Updates)

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

they returned a week ago, and are only now being tested and quarantined?
what about quarantining their families in the provinces
as it's much likely they took it from phnom penh than brought it back

it's just health-security theater (a slapstick comedy perhaps)
and punishment for disobedience

PM urges people to stay home
Prime Minister HE today called on the masses to stay indoors as much as possible to contain the spread of COVID-19, as Cambodia’s neighbours has not seen the curve flatten yet.

In a post on his official Facebook page, the premier asked people in the kingdom not to leave home except when absolutely necessary.

“Unless it is necessary, please do not stay outside,” Mr HE said. “And when you need to go, do not go as a group; only the head of the family or the member who really needs to go out to do something, should go out.”

Mr HE said that despite the positive result shown by his government in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic with no new cases reported for 12 consecutive days, the people needed to take extra precautions to protect themselves and others from contracting the coronavirus.

122 COVID cases reported . . . 110 cases of recovery
and a few left the country already

so what justification is there to restrict movement
when there are only a handful of active cases, and no new ones for nearly 2 weeks?

He’s simply covering his arse if it all goes Pete Tong.
If it does goes to shit he can say “I told you to stay home, I told you to social distance..... etc etc”

And if nothing happens he can say “well done for following my orders”

It’s a win-win situation all round for him.
