Government Restricts Movement Outside Phnom Penh Due to Covid-19

The government on Thursday issued a one-week ban on civilian travel in and out of Phnom Penh, and between districts outside the capital, effective at midnight and aimed at limiting the spread of Covid-19, according to an order from Prime Minister Hun Sen.

The travel restriction is in effect from 24:00 on Thursday until 24:00 on April 16, the order says.

The premier posted the order to his Facebook page on Thursday evening, about seven hours before it will go into effect, stating that he “didn’t have a choice” and asking the public for understanding.
