According to Sim Chy, chairman of the association, as of March 26, no COVID-19 infections had been recorded among Vietnamese Cambodians, and only one of them, who is working in Poipet city bordering Thailand, has been quarantined in a concentrated center.

The Cambodian Ministry of Health on March 25 evening confirmed five new cases, raising the total number in the country to 96.

On March 24, the Standing Board of the Khmer-Vietnamese Association warned Vietnamese Cambodians against movement and overseas trips and advised them to observe countermeasures of the Cambodian government.

In case of emergency, it is recommended to contact the association’s chapters in Cambodian cities and provinces or its office via phone number (+85588.999.5162).

Pham Thanh Thuy, vice chairwoman and general secretary of the association, said most of the Vietnamese Cambodians are traders and about half of them had shut down shops to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
