Cambodia PM: We may declare state of emergency if Covid-19 situation worsens

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said on Sunday that the kingdom may declare a state of emergency if the Covid-19 situation deteriorates further.

“Frankly speaking, I’ve already drafted a royal decree and a request for the king to put the country in the state of emergency,” he said in an audio message posted on his official Facebook page.

“But I don’t want to move forward to such a step because it will bog down Cambodia’s economy if the country or its parts such as capital Phnom Penh or any province is locked down,” he said.
