Dozens Tested for Covid-19 in Siem Reap After Positive Man Was ‘Everywhere’

Dozens of people are getting tested for Covid-19 in Siem Reap after a French man visited bars and attended a pool party during supposed self-quarantine before testing positive over the weekend, on his 13th day of mandatory isolation.

The 27-year-old French man tested negative for Covid-19 after arriving in Phnom Penh on September 20 from France via Singapore, but was confirmed to have the virus on Saturday.

French School of Siem Reap secretary Julie Kielemoes said one of the school’s teachers had been at Laundry Bar last week at the same time as the man. The teacher was not in direct contact and did not talk to him, but is staying away from the school for two weeks as a precaution, Kielemoes said.
