There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place.

Thai borders stay shut despite calls for reopening
Thailand and Laos borders will remain closed to the Kingdom. The decision comes following talks with the countries’ officials regarding the reopening of borders to stimulate trade after months of stagnation due to the pandemic.

In a provincial hall statement released yesterday, Banteay Meanchey provincial governor Oum Reatrey said Thai authorities remain adamant in keeping the Poipet-Khlong Luk International Checkpoint – the most important border point shared by the two nations – closed for entry, including by Cambodian vendors.

“[It] will remain closed and there is no official information to confirm whether when it will reopen,” the statement said.

However, it noted: “The Banteay Meanchey provincial governor and Thai authorities agreed in principle to allow 50 trucks, with each having no more than two people, to transport goods in and out of Rong Kluea border market.”

Despite the leeway, the statement said the market which is located in Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province will only be open to the trucks from 8am to 1pm. Moreover, drivers of the trucks must observe instructions issued by health authorities to prevent any coronavirus transmission.

Meanwhile, Cambodian migrant workers returning from Thailand can only come through the O’Bei Choan checkpoint in O’Chrov district.

The statement was released after yesterday’s meeting via video conference between Banteay Meanchey provincial governor Oum Reatrey and his Sa Kaeo counterpart, Voraphan Suwannus. The discussion was arranged following the former’s request to tackle the reopening of the Poipet-Khlong Luk International Checkpoint, which had recently been at the centre of contention.

There seems to be a lot of people in full blown quarantine at the moment.

That news item says self quarantine but surely that must be enforced quarantine?

The authorities are playing fast and loose with other peoples money for the sake of a $100 test prior to travel. Most are working overseas and earning much better money than in Cambodia so there is no reason not to require a test prior to travel.

Cambodian returnee who returned from Malaysia and tested positive for COVID-19 had been treated and discharged in Malaysia

One of the two Cambodians who were tested positive for COVID-19 after returning to Cambodia from Malaysia on 26 June was a former patient in Malaysia and had been successfully treated and discharged from a Malaysian hospital before flying to Cambodia.

The Malaysian Health ministry is also looking to track the whereabouts of the second Cambodian who was a student in a religious school in Malaysia for contact tracing.

Malaysian director general of Health, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah was quoted by Malaysian media as saying that the individual, a Cambodian, was Malaysia’s “patient 1,051” who had been admitted for Covid-19 in the past and discharged.

“The individual is an old case in Malaysia and although he had been tested positive (in Cambodia), it could be due to virus shedding, and as such it is not a major concern.

He added that the said patient had been discharged but the virus could still be detected through a RT-PCR (reverse transmission-polymerase chain reaction) test, but the virus is weak and not active.

“We will inform the Cambodian authorities that this is not a new case, but an old one that has been discharged, ” said Dr Noor Hisham at the ministry’s Covid-19 press conference here on Monday (June 29), the director general was quoted by Malaysian media.

On the second case of the student, the Malaysian health ministry expected to coordinate with the Cambodian health ministry and the airlines to identify those who were seated two rows in front and two rows behind the patients so that they can be tested, the director general was quoted as saying.

Any news on the 10 new cases announced today? At least some of which don’t appear to be connected to inbound travellers
