Cambodia water festival cancelled

Cambodia has cancelled the annual three-day Water Festival scheduled to take place in late October as the nation tries to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The government’s decision has been conveyed to the National Committee for Organising National and International Festivals, which was supposed to organise the festival from Oct 30 to Nov 1.

According to a Khmer Times report, Ek Tha, the spokesman for the office of the Council of Ministers, said authorities were concerned about virus-transmission prevention at the event.
