As of today (3 January, 2022 ), the first dose of vaccine has been given to 69.7 percent of the Mongolian population, and 66.5 percent of the population is fully vaccinated. 28.2 percent of Mongolians have been given the booster shot.
While many nations were grappling with the rapid spread of the highly transmissible delta variant, Covid-19 transmission in Mongolia declined sharply as the country vaccinated more than half of its population since February, 2021. Mongolia had one of the fastest vaccination rollout programs in the world, and by May, 2021 many of its coronavirus restrictions were lifted as new cases fell dramatically.
Just months ago, new cases had fallen to triple-digits, and there were some days in recent months where no new deaths were recorded.
Today, the country of 3.4 million has recorded 138 new cases of Covid-19; 11 of them were imported and 97 were in Ulaanbaatar. It was also reported that no new COVID-19 related death.
So far, Mongolia has 390,014 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 2,060 deaths.
