Using the QR code will help businesses such as hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, entertainment venues, condominiums, companies and factories among others to record the movements of customers, visitors and staff on their premises, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.
"This system does not trace the individuals' privacy, but it will be convenient for health authorities to find people involved if any COVID-19 positive cases are detected on their premises," Health Minister Mam Bunheng said in the statement.
He urged people to use the system in order to join hands to curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Business owners can download a QR code at https://stopcovid.gov.kh, the minister said, adding that after getting the code, they can print and paste it on entry, so customers or visitors can scan it with their smartphones when they check-in.
Cambodia also confirmed 17 new Covid-19 cases on Sunday, bringing the total number of infections in the kingdom to 533, the Ministry of Health (MoH) said in a statement.
The new infections included 15 locally-transmitted cases in the capital Phnom Penh and two imported cases, the statement said, adding that the new patients were undergoing treatment at various designated Covid-19 hospitals.
MoH's secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine said the imported cases were found on a 47-year-old Cambodian man returning from Thailand on Feb. 18 and a 43-year-old Czech woman coming from the Czech Republic on Feb 7.
The Cambodian man tested positive for the virus upon his arrival, while the Czech woman was found positive for the virus in her second test, she said.
The Southeast Asian nation has so far registered a total of 533 confirmed Covid-19 cases, with zero deaths and 473 recoveries, Vandine added. - Xinhua
