Materials are being transported to Kampong Speu province’s Oral district for the installation of five automatic crematoriums for Covid-19 deceased patients.
Kampong Speu provincial governor Vei Samnang said the automatic crematoriums will be constructed on a 10-ha land in Oral district’s Ta Sal commune which the Phnom Penh municipality had selected recently.
“The technical team is installing the materials to construct five automatic crematoriums with cement bases and are connected to electrical wires. It will takes one week at the latest to finish the installation and put them into use," he said.
The materials for the five crematoriums installation were purchased from Thailand by Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng in early March amid the ongoing community outbreak.
As of April 18, a total of 45 people had died from the disease, according to the Ministry of Health.
