Preah Sihanouk and Kandal provinces have extended the ban on alcohol sale there to curb the spread of Covid-19 which they said still has not subsided.

In Preah Sihanouk, governor Kuoch Chamroeun prolonged the ban for another 14 days effective through June 10.

“All marts and alcohol wholesalers in Preah Sihanouk have to suspend the sale of all alcoholic items,” he said, adding that any violation will result in legal action without exeption.

In Kandal province, governor Kong Sophorn extended the ban until June 2.

Gatherings for drink are also forbidden; violators will face legal action or administrative measures.
