Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday, during the launch of the vaccination campaign for children aged five years old at the Peace Palace, said that his decision to reopen the country was based on four factors.


He explained that the first factor is the fact that around two million Cambodian people were vaccinated with the booster dose. As a result of the vaccination campaign, resistance against Covid-19 among the Khmer people is very high, helping to cut down the mortality rate of the pandemic.

Regarding this factor, Mr Hun Sen recommended that people not just count on the vaccines that the government bought for them, they must observe precautions against the pandemic everywhere, and at all times.
