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.

School was originally only cancelled for SR and then PP K-12. They updated it today to include the entire country and universities.

I'm not sure what you mean there. What quarantine or hotel/motel? Unfortunately you do have to provide for yourself most of the time, the government will likely concentrate on helping their own citizens. Cruise tours are extremely expensive so I'd imagine they were able to pay any extra expenses. While the government may have stepped in early on for the good PR of being benevolent, this won't be sustained for long if more and more visitors become sick. I'm not trying to be mean, but the elders/leaders here have all been through tough times. They didn't have the luxury of foreign travel and had to stick it through war, poverty, famine, isolation etc. We didn't. We just came when the security situation improved. We had a choice and the onus is on us to sort our own shit out when the shit goes down.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

It is, but as soon a passengers find out the flight is more than half empty they start changing seats and the official data becomes useless.

Saw it happen on a Thai flight yesterday.
