For the last five years, Seum Sreyoun has woken up at 5 a.m., rushed to finish her housework and then gotten ready for the 5:30 a.m. truck to her workplace.
The 39-year-old would then brave an hour-long treacherous ride to the garment factory crammed into the back of a flatbed truck with other workers.
However, now she no longer has to wake up at 5 a.m. because her factory, Winning Dragon Leatherwear Cambodia, suspended work last week due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. That pandemic has also infected 117 people in Cambodia, so far.
