Ulaanbaatar suspends traffic movement with 21 provinces to prevent coronavirus risks

AKIPRESS.COM - Traffic movement has been suspended between Ulaanbaatar and 21 provinces of Mongolia from 8 a.m. February 23 to 8 a.m. February 27, Montsame reports.

Starting from February 27, Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), which tracks and monitors displacement and population mobility in contexts of emergency, will be deployed at entrance and exit points of Ulaanbaatar.

More specifically, drivers and passengers will be asked about where they have come from and where they are heading to at six entrance and exit points starting 8 a.m. February 27 and a digital database will be created with the information collected.

This will help prevent Covid-19 infections and find those who came into contact with Covid-19 patients in case of the outbreak of the disease in Mongolia. Ulaanbaatar city government and IOM Mongolia will jointly deploy the system until March 8 or later depending on the circumstances.

As the mass media were not included in the list of permitted activities during the state of emergency in Kyrgyzstan, AKIpress apologizes to its readers for reduced promptness and coverage of news.
