Cambodia again closes schools after new community COVID-19 outbreak

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen Monday decided to close all schools in capital Phnom Penh and southern Kandal province again for two weeks after a new community COVID-19 outbreak had been detected.

The move was to prevent the spread of the virus into schools, he said in an audio message released to the public.

“Just in three days, nearly 100 people have been tested positive for the COVID-19, which is the highest-ever number in our country since the virus was first found (in January 2020),” he said.
