PHNOM PENH -- Hong Kong-listed NagaCorp has temporarily closed its Cambodian casino complex NagaWorld after 11 workers tested positive for COVID-19.

The closure comes as Cambodia is experiencing its worst coronavirus outbreak since the pandemic began, with thousands of residents in the capital Phnom Penh under a lockdown, but workers at the casino say action should have come sooner.
