Fourteen fishermen were detained and placed in a quarantine centre in Kiri Sakor district of Koh Kong province following their return from a trip to export sea products to Thailand, where Covid-19 also remains a risk.
Kiri Sakor district governor Cheng Munirith said on April 23 that the 14 fishermen were placed in the centre on April 22 after they went to Thailand in two boats.
“Now, the Covid-19 transmission in Thailand is worse than in Cambodia. We are afraid that they could import the disease to our community,” he said.
He said their test results released today were all negative but they had to remain in the quarantine centre for 14 days and be tested again as instructed by the Ministry of Health.
