Cambodia has started vaccinating textile and clothing workers in a bid to inoculate half a million of them by the end of June and help kick-start a post-pandemic recovery.

The country previously had one of the lowest incidences of coronavirus (Covid-19), but an outbreak that started in late February has led to 82 deaths and a five-fold increase in total cases to 3,316 as of 28 April.
