Cambodia ends curfew amid easing of pandemic restrictions

Although Covid-19 cases have been falling, outbreaks in prisons remain a major concern.

Cambodia has ended a nighttime curfew and lifted a ban on alcohol sales, which were imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19 after a third communal outbreak resulted in cases spiraling and at least 165 deaths.

Social distancing, the wearing of masks and QR scanning before entering buildings and restaurants will remain, with heavy fines and possible jail terms imposed for those who violate the health rules.

More than 2,000 people have been detained for violating the curfew since it was imposed on April 15. Of them, 11 were jailed.
