Mounting desperation in Cambodia amid COVID lockdown


Iv Sovann has been in lockdown with her family in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh since April 5 when the government imposed a raft of stringent measures to curb a sudden surge of coronavirus cases. The 36-year-old’s family of six has no income. Her husband, a teacher, lost his job when the school where he worked shut down a year ago. Sovann has been keeping the family afloat by working as an accounts assistant for a local transport company. “We are not rich. We live hand to mouth. If we were rich like others, it would be OK for us to be in quarantine for a year,” she said. Desperate for food, this week she was among a group of people in the Phnom Penh district of Stueng Meanchey who took matters into their own hands.
