Prime Minister Hun Sen said today that the government is considering requesting King Norodom Sihamoni to place the country in a state of emergency amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am considering to ask the King to place the country in a state of emergency,” he said. “If we place the country in a state of emergency, civil rights will be affected.”

Mr Hun Sen said that the government will not close the markets, restaurants and small shops amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Some people urged me to close all, including small shops such as coffee and food shops. If we close all shops, how can we live?” he added.
