PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodia decided on Thursday (April 21) to reduce a quarantine period for unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers from 14 days to seven days, Health Minister Mam Bunheng said in a statement.

"Travellers entering Cambodia by land borders must undergo two rapid tests-one on the first day before entering the quarantine centre and the other on the seventh day to end their quarantine," he said.

"For those entering the country by air, they must take a rapid test on the seventh day to end their quarantine," he added.

Bunheng said the decision took effect immediately.

The minister also advised health authorities to provide Covid-19 vaccines to unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated Cambodian travellers on the seventh day when they are allowed to leave quarantine facilities.

The South-East Asian nation has fully resumed its socio-economic activities and reopened its borders to fully vaccinated travelers without quarantine since last November after most of its population have been inoculated against the disease.

The kingdom has so far administered one dose of Covid-19 vaccines to 14.86 million people, or 92.9 per cent of its 16-million population, the health ministry said, adding that of them, 14.12 million, or 88.3 percent, have been fully vaccinated with two required shots.

Most of the jabs used in the country's immunization program are Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines.
