Kampong Chhnang, Tbong Khmum and Pursat provinces are the only provinces not to have reached their vaccination targets due to late supplies, according to a voice message from Prime Minister Hun Sen on Wednesday night. By contrast, the remote northeastern province of Ratanakiri has reportedly vaccinated 130,000 people — 10,000 more than their target population.
