WTF!
First, Cambodia is pure and does not have it. Official.
Then, many countries are a deadly risk, but not China. Official.
Now, only Muslims get it. Official.

KR stuff.
Frankly, the latest is the most worrying to me, this has a abiltiy to cause major damage to Cambodia's cultural harmony.
Rubbish. The latest cases are all Cambodian Muslims, only because they all got infected while attending a big Muslim get-together in Malaysia.
:nono: Do watch what you say. These things are quickly repeated.(And may cause 'major damage', as you say.)

Also good news from Europe where Germany is the first nation to take serious precautions. Germans are stocking up on sausages and cheese instead of toilet roll in readiness for isolation. As a consequence, Germany is now fully prepared for the Wurstkäse scenario..

@hanno tell me it is true! :D

just like trump's 'foreign virus', 'chinese virus' etc

i guarantee there will be absolutely no cases of cambodians infected by chinese
any that are will be because the chinaman caught it from a round-eye
china are the good guys, and saviours

Lockdowns in France and Italy Prohibit Funeral Attendances
The French Prime Minister, when answering questions from the public on the 15-day coronavirus lockdown, said that all unnecessary trips outside of the home were forbidden, including attending the funeral of deceased family and friends.
Naturally enough, this has provoked a lot of comment on French social media.
During the French lockdown, five acceptable reasons have been given by the authorities for leaving your house - essential work, shopping for food, caring for infants or elderly, going to the doctor, and taking a solitary walk, with or without your dog. There is a 135 euros fine for anyone caught breaking the lockdown law.

Italy has also prohited funeral attendances. On 10 March, 48 people were fined by the police for following a funeral procession in the streets of Porto Empedocle in Sicily. The fine for not respecting the lockdown has been fixed at 206 euros.
