Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen, as Chairman of the National Committee for Combatting Covid-19 announced that Cambodia has prepared more than 3,000 rooms for Covid-19 treatment.
The premier spoke in a meeting with 400 volunteered doctors to fight Covid-19 on 25 March 2020 at the Peace Palace.
The premier has ordered governors nationwide to rent hotels or guesthouses as the sites to treat people infected with Covid-19.
“As hotels have fewer guests, we could use them as the hospitals. We can rent a hotel in Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kampong Cham or any other province. It will be much easier as rooms and utilities are available already,” said Premier Hun Sen in a voice message addressed to governors spread in a messaging app on Monday.
Cambodia has reported 93 cases of Covid-19, according to the premier on 25 March 2020 (updated as of 11 a.m).
