Lockdown Day 14

The arrow points to the area of the Maryknoll office, located in an orange zone. Red zones have high concentrations of infected people, orange zones have moderate numbers. and yellow areas have few infections. The large area to the southwest of us is red because many garment factory workers live there in crowded conditions

Recent Developments

  • Previously only the worst affected areas of Phnom Penh were marked as red zones. Today the whole city was put into a red, organ, or yellow zone. The zones will be re-evaluated in a week’s time.
  • The prime minister declared last night that everyone in Phnom Penh must be vaccinated, starting with the red zones.
  • Russ Brine, a Maryknoll Lay Missioner, went out this morning to buy food and didn’t have any problems. I hope that continues. He brought me some bananas. Thanks, Russ!
