Cambodian PM calls for precautions over Covid-19 as Pchum Ben public holiday approaches

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen has called on people to take extra precautions to prevent large-scale Covid-19 transmission during the Pchum Ben public holiday on Oct. 5-7.

During the holiday, people are expected to travel across the South-East Asian nation, which can pose high risk of large-scale transmission, especially its Delta variant, the prime minister said in a circular.

He advised local authorities to enforce preventive measures at tourism-related businesses and resorts during the holiday and encouraged state institutions and private companies to rapid test their employees for Covid-19 when they return to work from the holiday.
