Ministry Urges Strict Watch After Two Flee From Covid-19 Quarantine

The Health Ministry has instructed Phnom Penh and provincial authorities to tighten security at Covid-19 quarantine centers after two men who have tested negative escaped from a designated site in Prey Veng province for several hours on Monday.

Health Ministry spokesperson Or Vandine said on Tuesday that government-mandated quarantines had generally gone smoothly since the government lifted travel restrictions in May, but some individuals had managed to flee from quarantine centers.

“[I] would like the local authorities and law enforcement officers to increase their ability in guarding more strictly to avoid escapes from the quarantine center,” Vandine said.
