Covid forces capital's Depot market shut

Authorities in Phnom Penh's Tuol Kork district on August 14 have temporarily shut Depot Market and area in its vicinity as it was frequented by some people who have now tested positive for Covid-19.

Samdech Techo Voluntary Youth Doctor Association (TYDA) workers have been taking sample of vendors and people living around the market for testing.

“All vendors and people who come to the market frequently need to have their sample collected for testing in front of the market,” the sub-commission for tracking Covid-19 said in a notice.

District governor Ek Khun Doeun inspected the market and called on those who have been in contact with vendors to also take the test.

"If any vendors fail to take the test or have no letter certifying it, the market management must not allow them to resume their business," he said.
