The quarantine period has to be extended to 21 days for Delta and Delta Plus variants, stressed Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen in his statement on current COVID-19 situation in Cambodia this morning.
The Premier also instructed separate treatment for the patients detected with Delta or Delta Plus variants.
The new variants have been found in Cambodia and in its neighbouring countries, he said, encouraging competent authorities to tighten the entry and exit at the border – land, water and air, conduct rapid test at the border, and reinforce quarantine, particularly in the provinces bordering Thailand.
According to Ministry of Health, about 22 cases of the B.1.617.2 coronavirus variant (Delta) have been detected on Cambodian migrants workers from Thailand, in June alone.
