In recent days, Mongolia has recorded the highest daily increases of new coronavirus infections since the first community transmission detected in the country in November 2020. In connection with Mongolia's daily COVID-19 case counts, which have been at least 300 and up to 600, the State Emergency Commission yesterday, March 29, convened for an online meeting. The meeting heard presentation by the Ministry of Health on the COVID-19 situation and response measures with suggestion to scale the country’s coronavirus emergency regime level of current Orange Level up to Red Level or the all-out-readiness regime preparedness starting from April 3, Saturday, until April 18, Sunday. The SEC supported the Health Ministry’s suggestion and decided to submit the proposal for the cabinet’s discussion. The cabinet is expected to review the matter at this week’s regular meeting scheduled on March 31, Wednesday. Under the Red Level regime, which is regulated to be issued when large-scale community infections of COVID-19 are recorded among general population, operations of all types of non-essential public and private organizations and individuals are restricted and special measures for strict lockdown and quarantine are implemented.
