Heng Vanda, chairman of the board of the Cambodian Higher Education Association, said the private sector had not yet asked the ministry to reopen schools because of the continuation of the local COVID outbreak.
“Although the number of cases has dropped and improved, the number of cases remains worrying,” he said. If the school is open, it affects the students and the students because the school is a gathering place. Even though the February 20 event is not over, if the Ministry of Education allows us to open, we will open immediately.” KPT
