Cambodia restricts domestic travel for fear of coronavirus spread

The Cambodian government issued a directive on Thursday restricting people from traveling across the country for one week to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

The directive, signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen, says certain categories of people, including government officers, health workers and transporters of goods, are exempt from the restrictions.

They mostly affect garment workers who planned to travel from Phnom Penh, the capital, to their hometowns for family reunions during four-day Cambodia’s New Year that begins Monday.
