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.

But again this is a business opportunity. The hotels currently charging (for one person I know in day 9 of 14)$90 per day and $60 for meals. Capacity is 50 rooms multiplied by 150 multiplied by 14 = $105000 then two flights a month we have over $200000 per month.
I don't know who owns the hotels that are used but I would think they all have connections to the family or providing a dividend.
That's $2000 for 14 days. Aren't they Australian quarantine prices?

It would be interesting to know how many of the new arrivals are sponsored and can avoid this nonsense and how many are going through this latest racket.

I know there were a few people that got into Cambodia in recent months with fairly thin credentials to obtain their visa, and viewed the two days in lock up as a price worth paying. I doubt there are many of those now.

It said with “good” cooperation between the governments of the two countries, Israel will send the Cambodian students to Phnom Penh International Airport between Monday and November 30 on a special flight that flies directly from Israel to Cambodia.

The special flight will then transport 250 other Cambodian students who have received scholarships to study in Israel.

A work colleague has provided a link to Fresh News' Khmer language site that appears to say Aeon Mall 1 will close temporarily because of COVID-19 infection.

Can't connect to the website right now but here's what was sent to me:

None of the English language news sites have it yet so I cannot verify - anyone else able to give further info?

there is absolutely no chance that this has come from an unacknowledged pool of infections
so i expect they will trace it to a recent arrival or foreigner quite soon

This appears to be pretty big news. My partner's phone hasn't stopped pinging and ringing all night regarding this latest positive case announced tonight.

The fact that the infected woman is Khmer, as opposed to anyone who's recently entered the country, raises a lot more concern than other 'near misses' we've had lately. Who did she get it from? And who else has 'that person' infected, let alone who the woman who went to Aeon Mall (and has also travelled to Siem Reap) has infected?

My own manager has been sending telegram messages to all of the staff tonight (late on a Saturday night) to ask if anyone went to Aeon Mall today. Many Khmers are very concerned. Especially that the PM has issued a warning himself.

Nobody can deny we've been extremely lucky so far here in Cambodia compared to other countries so far.

Let's pray that our luck hasn't just run out.
