Cambodia’s ‘Bridge into Europe’ Tests Positive for COVID-19

Prime Minister Hun Sen, among hundreds of others, is in quarantine after meeting with Hungary’s foreign minister.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, his wife and at least 18 bodyguards are in quarantine after meeting with the Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus shortly after leaving the country.

A health ministry official said 628 people were confirmed as negative following tests in response to his visit, but Hun Sen said he and others would enter quarantine as a precautionary measure.

Szijjártó’s visit had been hailed as a success after he told Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn that the Hungarian government was ready to serve as the bridge in cooperation between the European Union and Cambodia.
