Emphasizing the difficulties of overseas people, ambassador Lai Xuan Chien said that the pandemic was developing very complicated in Cambodia. The number of new cases per day still stays at 500-600.

The Vietnam Embassy and the Khmer-Vietnam Association in Cambodia are closely watching the situation of people in blocked areas to provide timely support to people in need.

Vo Tuan Ngoc, Head of Community Affairs Department, Vietnamese Embassy to Cambodia, said: “This afternoon we will give 5 tons of rice and 400 boxes of instant noodles to the Khmer-Vietnam Association in Phnom Penh so that the association can directly give the gift to 400 Khmer and Vietnamese households in Russey Keo district (Phnom Penh). The district is a pandemic hotspot that broke out just last week with more than 300 infections."
