The PM speaks…

On 1 July Prime Minister Hun Sen spoke to the kingdom by Zoom for more than two hours . Some of his points:

  • He was in quarantine because his hairdresser had Covid-19
  • People infected with the Delta variant will be quarantined for three weeks instead of two
  • Cambodians working Thailand should not try to hurry back to Cambodia now that construction sites in Thailand are closed for a month
  • He recommended “Chinese medicines” he said have been used to treat Covid-19 in the Middle East
  • He ordered the Finance Ministry to buy up 80% of the coffins in the country to keep at hospitals.

We’ll see if his admonitions about anti-Covid-19 precautions are heeded.
