Governor: Negligence could turn capital into colour-coded zones again

Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng warned that negligence in implementing health and other administrative measures amid the ongoing community outbreak of Covid-19 could result in the redesignation of the capital as yellow, orange and red zones.

Sreng made the remarks in a June 11 notice about the strengthening of restrictive measures on business activities, occupations and gathering deemed as posing high risks of transmission in Phnom Penh.

He said since the lockdown of Phnom Penh and adjacent Takhmao town in Kandal province was lifted, the municipality had been focusing on three measures, namely administrative, health and social protection measures.

Sreng said after the lockdowns, the municipality had noticed increasing negligence among some private companies, factories and enterprises, restaurants, marts, private and state markets, workers and the general public in implementing preventive measures against Covid-19.

“Such disregard poses risk of community transmission, which could lead to some parts of Phnom Penh being reclassified into yellow, orange and red zone,” he said, reiterating call for all individuals and establishments to strictly abide by the existing administrative measures.
