Cambodia shuts schools in capital area as virus precaution

Schools in Cambodia’s capital and the surrounding area will be shut for two weeks as a precaution after Hungary’s foreign minister tested positive for the coronavirus after visiting Cambodia last week, the Education Ministry said Sunday.

Schools throughout Cambodia reopened last Monday after being closed since March due to the coronavirus, but with limited class sizes and hours.

Public and private schools in Phnom Penh, the capital, and the surrounding province of Kandal will be closed again for two weeks, the Education Ministry said in a statement. It said students will be able to learn online, as they did when schools were closed earlier.
