In a consultation meeting to examine the short-term, medium and long-term requirements of migrant workers in the epidemic of Covid-19 on Wednesday at the Ministry of Interior, Samdech Sor Khneng said that the number of workers returning from other countries, especially Thailand has so far been more than 80 thousand and they scattered in every province.

Samdech continued to say that under the current situation, Cambodia could not allow migrant workers to cross the border because Thailand has closed the border, and Thailand has put the country in a crisis, so some workplaces were shut down and Cambodian workers were unemployed and they could not return to Thailand.
