A Russian national has died after being released from 21-days of isolation in Mongolia. Ms. A.Ambaselmaa, Head of the Surveillance Department of the National Centre for Communicative Diseases, has said that the Russian did not die of COVID-19, although Mongolian health officials had tested him for the disease.
Since 8 January, Mongolia has conducted COVID-19 tests on 14702 people; 287 of them were confirmed as having coronavirus. Fortunately, the virus has not taken anyone’s life; of those who tested positive, 213 people have been discharged from the NCCD after having fully recovered from coronavirus – leaving 74 people under treatment at the hospital. Currently, 36 people are under observation of the symptoms of coronavirus in resorts and 51 at home after having been released from the NCCD.
All Mongolian coronavirus cases are imported from 15 countries; most of them are from Russia.
