PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodia on Wednesday (Sept 23) decided to allow football fans to return to stadiums, but limited the number of spectators to roughly 10 per cent of the stadium's seating capacity, Minister of Health Mam Bunheng said in a press statement.

Spectators must book their seats online, he said, adding that the stadiums must adhere to the anti-Covid-19 pandemic measures set out by the Ministry of Health.

"Automatic thermal scanners and disinfectant spray booths must be installed at the stadium's entrances," he said.

"All viewers must wear face masks throughout the game."

The minister added that the fans must keep social distancing and someone with a cold will be refrained from entering the stadium.

The move came after the situation of Covid-19 has eased and the kingdom is due to organize two annual footfall events, namely the Hun Sen Cup and the Metfone Cambodian League.

The Southeast Asian nation has seen success in controlling the spread of Covid-19. The country has recorded a total of 275 confirmed cases to date, the Ministry of Health said, adding that none have died and 274 have recovered.
