The Ministry of Defense said that it has inoculated nearly 150,000 people in Phnom Penh’s Red Zone, just four days after the ministry was assigned to the task.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Hun Sen said that the government is committed to vaccinate everyone in the Red Zone, which houses around 520 thousand people.
“I would like to clarify that unless we vaccinate all citizens in the Red Zone, we shall never walk away from the virus” the premier said.
Mr Hun Sen confirmed that the government has enough vaccines for every person in the Red Zone, with another 1.5 million doses arriving next week.
