Surveillance app being used in Mongolia to fight COVID-19

The Mongolian National Emergency Commission reported that 2223 people have been quarantined in the Bayan-Ulgii, Darkhan-Uul, Khuvsgul, Khentii, Bayankhongor and Zavkhan provinces. They will be released to self-quarantine at home after 14 days of isolation. If anyone who ordered to self-quarantine leaves their homes will be punished under Law on Offences.

The law enforcement bodies will track them with mobile applications installed in their phones. They are, therefore, forbidden to turn-off their phones. Similar surveillance apps are being used around the world in the fight against the pandemic. These precedents raise questions about the role of the state when the world emerges from the pandemic.

Mongolia reported 10 confirmed cases of coronavirus; nine Mongolian evacuated from abroad and a French national who brought COVID-19 in infection-free Mongolia on 10 March.
