Prime Minister Hun Sen has provided a further 7,110 million riel ($1.7 million) to 24 provinces in preparation for quarantine from July 26 to August 8, according to the Ministry of Health.
The ministry said the 24 provinces had so far reported 21,352 people in quarantine.
Banteay Meanchey and Siem Reap have quarantined 4,104 and 3,190 people respectively, placing a lot of pressure on resources.
There are also provinces such as Kampong Speu with 1,875 cases and Oddar Meanchey with 1,486 people in quarantine.
Other provinces have fewer people in quarantine including 394 in Preah Vihear, 432 in Kandal and 211 in Kampong Chhnang, or just few dozen total like in Mondulkiri and Stung Treng.
Kampong Speu provincial governor Vei Samnang said ongoing financial support from the government will assist in protecting public health.
“[The] government ... has money to support sub-national administrations, especially funds for people in quarantine,” he said.
He added that with the financial support from the government, sub-national authorities can set up better treatment facilities and quarantine centres.
“Our province is better set up with quarantine facilities because of the guidance from national and sub-national authorities ... Brothers and sisters have received free treatment services and our places are hygienic, have cooked rice, water, and electricity and exercise facilities,” Samnang said.
