Seut Ka On, 48, greengrocer:

"I'm kind of glad that the government has lifted the strict quarantine, but the problem is that the markets are still closed! to sell my vegetables anywhere... More than anything, I wish the authorities would finally open the market, and I was not afraid of police raids for selling in the wrong place..."

Cambodia is one of the countries least affected by the new virus. However, during the epidemic, the number of infected people increased from 500 to almost 17,000 at the end of February this year. A total of 110 patients have died from the coronavirus. Despite the lifting of quarantine, a curfew is still in effect at night, and it is forbidden to gather in groups of more than ten people. Bars, restaurants, massage parlors and schools remain closed until further notice from the authorities.
