Mongolia extends heightened state of readiness until end of August
Mongolia on Tuesday decided to extend the country's heightened state of readiness until Aug. 31 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The extension is part of efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the State Emergency Commission said in a statement.
As of Tuesday, Mongolia has confirmed 289 COVID-19 cases with no local transmissions or deaths.
All the confirmed cases in the Asian country were imported, mostly from Russia, according to the commission.
The country entered its heightened state of readiness in mid-February, with measures including the suspension of international passenger flights.
