Cambodia’s blanket Covid-19 lockdown in Phnom Penh coming to an end

Cambodia has declared the end of blanket Covid-19 lockdown in Phnom Penh after three weeks of its announcement, as the roads and streets of the capital are getting jammed with traffic again despite the efforts of the authorities to impose stricter protocols to curb the virus from spreading in the districts where a rise of Covid-19 infections have been reported.

As part of precautionary measures, health experts have been giving warning to not lift the cubs hastily but residents have been angered by the lockdown as the food aid being distributed is inadequate according to them.

The barricades that were set in the “yellow” zones designated as safe for mobility has already been removed by the authorities, whereas the “red” and “orange” zones which indicates higher rates of infection will remain to be under lockdown until May 12.
