At its irregular meeting today, the Cabinet decided to extend the strict lockdown in Ulaanbaatar city for four days from 6AM, January 6 until 6AM, January 11, reported the Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the State Emergency Commission Ya. Sodbaatar.
Specifically, the Cabinet issued a decision on December 21 to reintroduce the strict lockdown in Ulaanbaatar city starting from 6 AM, December 23, 2020 until 6AM, January 6, 2021, with a purpose to curb the spread of COVID-19.
But it has not yet resulted in a decrease of infections, and new COVID-19 cases with uncertain sources have been recorded in the capital city. Thus, it has been decided to extend the strict lockdown based on the recommendations of 11 professional organizations, including the Ministry of Health, National Center for Communicable Diseases and experts’ council.
Certain decisions on lifting quarantine from 06 AM of January 11 and returning trade, industrial and service sectors to normality are being made, emphasized Mr. Sodbaatar. “However, the situation of the spread of COVID-19 might change our plan”.
