Cambodian PM threatens Covid-19 quarantine-breakers with jail

Cambodia’s strongman premier Hun Sen threatened quarantine-breakers with jail time Saturday (April 10) and warned civil servants they could lose their jobs if they go unvaccinated, as the country grapples with a growing coronavirus caseload.

In the past two days, Cambodia has registered more than 1,000 infections – many among garment workers and market vendors – bringing the country’s tally to 4,081 cases and 26 deaths.

Authorities this week banned travel between provinces, imposed a night-time curfew in the capital Phnom Penh and shut down popular tourism sites including the famed Angkor Wat archaeological park.
