Authorities in Kampong Speu province have burned three containers worth of frozen buffalo meat imported from India that allegedly tested positive for COVID-19, despite a request from the Indian embassy requesting that the meat be retested. The Indian embassy in Phnom Penh maintains that there is no scientific evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted through frozen food.
