Japan International Coopera- tion Agency (JICA), in cooperation with Phnom Penh City Bus (PPCB) Administration and PPCB Authority, said yesterday they are implementing virus prevention measures and training staff to minimise the risk of virus infections for bus drivers and passengers once operations resume.

However, Ean Sokhim, director of PPCB, said the bus authority did not know when exactly the government would allow operations to resume.

“We are ready to open the bus routes again and are training our staff and drivers in order to keep them and passengers safe from COVID-19,” he said.

“Our authority has prepared alcohol-based sanitisers, masks, temperature-checking devices and altered seating arrangements as part of the effort.

“Before, we allowed 40 passengers in one bus, but now we will allow only 20 in order to comply with distancing guidelines advised by the Ministry of Health. We will also make it a requirement that passengers wear a mask when using our services,” he said.

He also thanked JICA for providing training and protective equipment.
Buses are put on standby at a Phnom Penh City Bus terminal.

A JICA press release said prior to COVID-19, improvements to the bus network and services saw the number of passengers increased significantly from 7,000 passengers per day in 2017 to nearly 30,000 in 2019.

It said that in order to resume operations, it will be dedicated to implementing measures that ensure safety.

“PPBC Administration, the PPBC Authority and JICA are committed to designing and implementing a City Bus operational plan, with a slogan ‘zero COVID-19 infections from bus drivers and passengers’ while also organising hygiene and prevention training for over 600 staff.

“The training will benefit present bus drivers and passengers, ensuring the safest possible experience,” JICA said.

Representatives from the Embassy of Vietnam have presented 4,000 antimicrobial face masks for the country’s detention centres to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Cambodia Wednesday.

The support was in response to a call from the ICRC in Cambodia for medical supplies for detainees.

Since the start of February, the ICRC in Cambodia has bolstered its support for the country’s General Department of Prisons’ efforts to curb the spread of the virus nationwide. The organisation has allocated close to $230,000 to assist those facilities around the country.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, ICRC Protection Coordinator in Cambodia, Chyngyz Rayimbekov underlined that the Embassy of Vietnam was among the first diplomatic offices in Cambodia to respond to the ICRC’s call.

The relief will contribute to the fight against the pandemic in Cambodia, he said, adding that the Vietnamese Government has also presented medical supplies to many countries, including the US and European nations.

General Department of Prisons Director-General Chan Kimseng noted that Vietnam has effectively brought the pandemic under control, been recognised as a model for handling the disease, and earned high public confidence.

The Embassy of Vietnam previously handed over a relief package of 60,000 masks and 300 protective suits from the Vietnam Red Cross Society to its Cambodian counterpart.

In early April, Ambassador Vu Quang Minh presented medical supplies, including test kits worth 7 billion VND (300,000 USD) from the Vietnamese Government and people to their Cambodian friends.
