Cambodia closed all markets in the capital Phnom Penh on Saturday to contain a spike in coronavirus infections as thousands of families plead for food during a two-week lockdown, Reuters reports.
Phnom Penh went into lockdown on April 15, declaring some districts as “red zones” which ban people from leaving their home except for medical reasons.
After the country recorded another record daily rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths amid a third wave of the pandemic, Thailand curbed shop operating hours on Saturday in shopping malls in 18 provinces, including the capital, Bangkok.
The new hours will restrict operations between 11 am and 8pm for a week from Sunday, the Thai Retailers Association said in a statement.
