Traveling in Times of Coronavirus

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us.

Late on Thursday, Hong Kong announced it had extended mandatory hotel quarantine from 14 to 21 days for all overseas arrivals, after announcing it for UK arrivals earlier this week. Some UK travellers discovered the new measures only upon their arrival, reported RTHK.
Wait till our little Khmer friends see this and get their calculators out. The $2000 deposit might have to go back up to $3000
England have always been known to have some of the world's best doctors and medical staff on overseas virus and illness, so yes they did their job naturally, finding a new strain, then other countries following suit also found there to be different strains of the covid-19 virus, but it's the English people who are now paying the price.

I asked the question of WHO some time ago, about the covid-19 virus and it's chance of mutation, and development of new strains, also a personal worry of the virus laying dorrment and undetectable in the person's body. The worry is it becoming drug resistant.
I suppose I will get the answers like everyone by the media.

UK shuts travel corridors and requires negative Covid tests to enter
All foreign arrivals will also have to quarantine in toughening of measures in response to new strains
Peter Walker Political correspondent
Fri 15 Jan 2021 18.58 GMT

Boris Johnson has announced a dramatic tightening of the UK’s borders, with all international arrivals to be forced to quarantine as well as demonstrate they have had a negative Covid test.

After months of criticism of the government’s lax border policies, which Labour claimed were “costing lives”, the prime minister said he was tightening the rules to prevent new variants of the virus reaching the UK and safeguard the vaccination programme.
