Nationwide Campaign to Strengthen Measures against COVID-19 Ended

The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has decided to end the nationwide campaign to strengthen the measures for combating and preventing the COVID-19 spread, after three weeks of implementation.

The campaign has been conducted smoothly with positive outcome in the past 21 days, said the RGC in a directive issued this evening, stressing that it has contributed to slowing down, at a certain level, the transmission of Delta variant in the community, while having no great impact on social and economic activities as well as the people’s daily life.

Noting different situation of COVID-19 transmission from one province to another, the RGC instructed all provincial and municipal authorities to continue reinforcing the health, administrative and legal measures based on the pandemic’s developments in their respective geographical areas.

The nationwide campaign included the ban of high-risk occupational and business activities and large private gatherings, and the curfew from 10:00 pm to 3:00 am.

As of this morning, Cambodia's COVID-19 tally rose to 87,723, of which 13,619 have been imported and over 500 have been detected with Delta variant. The pandemic has so far claimed 1,747 lives, but 87,723 have recovered.
