Cambodia bans frozen meat imports from India over Covid-19

Cambodia has imposed a ban on the imports of frozen meat and meat products from India in further efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the South-East Asian country, said Kun Nhim, director-general of Cambodia’s General Department of Customs and Excise (GDCE).

The ban took effect immediately and until further notice, he said in a statement, adding that the temporary suspension came after India reported a sharp spike in Covid-19 cases.

Nhim also advised customs officials to spray disinfectant on transport vehicles and the outer packaging of other products that have been sourced from India.
