Per the Government resolution on freight and vehicle movement made on February 17, freight vehicles carrying all types of goods and products are being allowed entry. However, foreign freight drivers are dropping off their trailers at the clearance and inspection zone for pickup by domestic freight forwarders.
In Selenge aimag, 94.2 percent of the target group have been involved in the first dose of COVID-19 vaccines, with 15,000 citizens fully vaccinated.
