After the Mongolian Government tightened measures aimed at combating the coronavirus and imposed restrictions on the movement of the population, Ulaanbaatar has become a ghost town.
The usual groups of pedestrians, fearing the large fines they might face, are nowhere to be seen. Only the cars of some professionals, the police, and special workers are seen in the streets.
As for public transport, it is running in the morning from 07.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. and in the evening from 5.00 p.m.to 09.00 p.m.
So far, Mongolia reported 412 confirmed cases of coronavirus; three of them are in Selenge Province. The overwhelming majority of cases of coronavirus in Mongolia have been imported. However, a few local transmissions have been reported since 10 November when a truck driver tested positive on Covid-19 after leaving 21 days of mandatory isolation.
