Cambodian officials blame Thai truck drivers for spreading Covid in border province

Cambodian officials imagine truck drivers from Thailand have brought more than simply their goods into Cambodia. The officials suspect the drivers have unfold Covid into their country, particularly, to the border province of Battambang.
The chief of the district, Sok Sokhun, says truckers that routinely cross the border might be why Covid is spreading throughout Battambang. He says it is possible the drivers have been asymptomatic when they crossed the border. Or, it is also that they lowered their guard when they got to Cambodia. Presumably, by “guard” the chief was referring to the masks and was not being metaphorical.
The inpouring of Covid circumstances is amongst vendors and an affected market close to the Duong worldwide checkpoint. It’s believed that the high variety of distributors who have contracted Covid is because of truck drivers, with as many as 600 driving via the checkpoint a day, says Sok within the Khmer Times.
“This checkpoint has no migrant staff crossing over, solely truck drivers who ship items between Cambodia and Thailand”, adds Sok.
The market in question, Kamrieng, where tons of of vehicles routinely stop to drop off items, closed for 1 day, last Wednesday, so as to curb the spread of Covid. Testing was then performed on 700 distributors on the market. Over 250 individuals examined optimistic since Wednesday. Stunning is at present tackling an outbreak of the Delta variant with new cases spiking since April.
