February 20, 2021, Covid Community Outbreak (Koh Pich and Beyond)

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.

Are we allowed to blame the Chinese yet? :evil:
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

Restaurants, which most bars are as well, were spared last time. Bad news for the booze only types.

How many of them were there ever on riverside anyway? A couple of bars but few if any of the others.

I bumped into a mate today at Super Duper. He goes to the Cambodiana gym as I do. Yesterday, Sunday 21st, he was in their late morning time and when he tried to leave the whole building was surrounded by military police "the serious ones that don't fuck about"

He was held in the hotel for 4 hours while they did what they were doing. After some extra time in the gym and pool he went to the bar to kill time.

It turns out they were they checking up on people in quarantine - it seems they are doing some checks. Maybe they are making sure people who are supposed to be in their rooms are actually in their rooms.

I had no idea that The Cambodiana was a quarantine hotel. I'm not sure I want to go back there now.

Has anyone else heard of The Cambodiana being used for quarantine purposes?

My friend stayed there. Food was optional.

Cases but are they sick? Do they have any symptoms?
