PHNOM PENH (The Phnom Penh Post/ANN): The Siem Reap Provincial Administration has scrapped its 14-day quarantine requirement for in-bound travellers after Prime Minister Hun Sen told all provincial governors to isolate only those suspected of carrying Covid-19.

The administration said authorities would instead put three checkpoints along the main roads leading to Siem Reap and neighbouring provinces. They will also strictly implement health measures and note the identities of travellers.

Hun Sen on May 6 likened the mandatory provincial quarantine to a nationwide lockdown.

On May 6, the Siem Reap provincial authorities identified two new Covid-19 cases imported from Preah Sihanouk province and called on family members of the Covid-19 positive persons to have their samples taken for testing and undergo 14-day quarantine.

As of May 6, Siem Reap had recorded 63 cases, with 45 receiving treatment and one death. - The Phnom Penh Post/Asia News Network
