The Samraung Health Center in Takeo province’s Bati district is tucked in behind the grey façade of an Acleda Bank branch and is opposite the local school.
The building is decrepit with little except a large sign at the front gate to suggest it is a functioning health center. Inside, the consultation rooms and general wards were padlocked. The noticeboard has a statement from the Ministry of Health on safety measures to be taken during traveling amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sitting alone in the only unlocked room, Yeu Chhengly is busy on his phone. The room has one table, stacked with documents, and a metal frame bed, with no mattress and a single pillow. He runs the health center.
