Cambodia Reports 10 More Cases; Tally Increases By 40 Cases In A Week

The recent spike in cases comes as Cambodia banned all Vietnamese nationals from entering the country, a day after Vietnam closed several border crossings and enforced visa restrictions on all nations, including those with visa exemptions like Cambodia.
