According to a press release issued this afternoon, the six-chapter-of-18-article draft law sets out health and administrative measures, and other measures to be taken to combat and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other deadly communicable diseases now and in the future to protect the people’s life, public health and public order, as well as to minimise the impact of the disease on Cambodia’s social and economic sectors.
