Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has appealed to all stakeholders to strictly follow the preventive measures against the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In the second phase of school reopening, I would like to appeal to the school management team, teachers and students to firmly adhere to the implementation of health safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially to continue reminding the students to often wash their hands with soap or alcohol-based or gel-based sanitizers, wear facemasks and to follow the instructions of the Ministry of Health,” the Premier underlined in a Facebook post this morning.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen also thanked the management of all public and private educational institutions for joining the Royal Government in the fight against COVID-19 to ensure the safety of students, education staff, parents and the whole community.
