Since 15 December, there have only been a few reported cases of COVID-19 in provincial clusters. The swift and remedial action taken by both state and local government – including the wearing of masks, hand washing, physical distancing, a strict lockdown, and contact tracing, testing and isolation – have contributed to this positive outcome. The number of positive cases in Ulaanbaatar (UB) city, however, has spiked. Four hospitals in UB city – the National Center for Communicable Diseases (NCCD), the National Cancer Center (NCC), the Military Hospital, and the Bayanzurkh District General Hospital – are considered the new clusters for these infections.
