Travel pass for journalists extended for another week

Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith has renewed the validity of travel passes for journalists issued in recent weeks for news coverage during the lockdown.

Now the passes are applicable until May 12 when the municipal hall is due to lift travel and business restrictions for red and orange zones.

Phnom Penh and adjacent Takmao town in Kandal province have extended restrictions on businesses and travel for another week after the three-week lockdown was lifted at the onset of May 6 as both municipal and provincial administrations retained red, orange and yellow zones with different levels of restrictions.

Kanharith reminded journalists that they are not authorised to do any live broadcast in red zones or forbidden areas, such as chasing ambulances transporting Covid-19 patients into treatment facilities.
