Her Excellency Dr. O Vandin, Secretary of State and Spokesperson of the Ministry of Health, once again called on the people to remain vigilant about the current situation.
She stated that the new COVID-19 virus is actively circulating in Cambodia without knowing where it is, especially in Phnom Penh. Transmission is very fast and has already spread to some provinces. So now stay at home and do not move from place to place and do not undertake any extra gatherings, such as weddings, housewarmings, religious festivals, etc.. This is the most necessary measure to help cut the transmission from one person to another as much as possible.
