The governor of the Phnom Penh City Hall, Khuong Sreng, ordered all regional governments in the capital to issue “shopping” cards, allowing one member of each household to purchase food and other necessities during the lockdown period.
Sreng requires authorities to maintain fairness when issuing cards and ensure that shoppers and sellers take health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
He said: “Since the start of the lockdown last week, the procurement of essentials has been a major problem, and many people have reported that they are facing supply shortage.”
He added: “I saw many markets were closed when they were identified as COVID-19 attractions, even from one area to another, and even for shopping purposes, these markets were banned.”
The Daun Penh District Government announced yesterday that the spread of COVID-19 has steadily increased in recent days, and vendors and residents have been quickly and shockingly infected.
The authorities have decided to lock the Phsar Kandal market for 14 days from April 19 to May 2 to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
