The government has extended the inter-provincial travel ban and temporary closures of tourist attractions and resorts across the country for another eight days, in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19.
According to a directive signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen on April 17, the ban is effective immediately through April 28, unless decided on otherwise during this period.
The government first imposed the ban on April 6 amid the ongoing outbreak of Covid-19.
On April 18 alone, the Ministry reported the country's 43rd Covid-19 fatality and a staggering 618 Covid-19 cases linked to the February 20 community outbreak.
As of April 18, Cambodia had recorded a total of 6,389 Covid-19 cases, with 3,865 receiving ongoing treatment.
