The Covid-19 situation in Cambodia, and especially in Phnom Penh, changes by the hour. More areas of the city have been designated as Red Zones with very strict control of movements.

Recent Developments

  • The army was mobilized today to vaccinate everyone in the Red Zones and then everyone in Phnom Penh.
