Cambodian PM tests positive for Covid at G20 in Bali

Hun Sen to return from Indonesian island and skip APEC meetings in Bangkok.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has tested positive for Covid-19 after arriving in Bali for the Group 20 (G20) meetings and will return home “for the safety of the delegates,” the outgoing chair of ASEAN wrote in an online post.

“I’m not sure when I got infected, but what is clear is that when I arrived, the Indonesian doctor took my sample in the evening and in the morning, I was confirmed positive for Covid-19, even though there is no suspected symptom,” he said on his Facebook page.

Cambodia is not a member of the G20 but Hun Sen was invited to represent the 10 nations of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) at the meetings of leaders from the world’s 20 biggest economies in Bali.
