A majority of residents in Phnom Penh and adjacent Takmao town are adhering to Covid-19 preventive measures, with few if any caught breaking the government's lockdown order as compared to when the nighttime curfew was imposed, when 209 vehicles were impounded in the first 12 days, according to municipal police spokesman San Sokseyha.
"We continue to deploy our forces in target areas to enforce the lockdown order. So far no one has been detained for violating the measures," he said.
The two-week lockdown, effective through April 28, came amid a sudden, huge surge in transmission cases linked to the February 20 community outbreak.
The lockdown also covers Takmao, the provincial town of Kandal which has been determined as one of the country's Covid-19 hotspots.
According to the Cambodian Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Phnom Penh had recorded the most cases at 3,555 with 1,204 recoveries and 34 fatalities as of April 15.
Kandal ranked third at 413 with 103 hospitalisations, after Preah Sihanouk province at 586 with 484 recoveries -- both have reported no death from the disease.
