There are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country of Mongolia. Thousands of people continue to be isolated and monitored as the virus emerges in the country and the government has extended a ‘high-level readiness’ period until 31 May The government has restricted travellers arriving through international ports and is providing on-the-job training for health workers on managing COVID-19.
World Vision has provided personal protective equipment like masks and coats to National Emergency Management Affairs and we have provided more than 7,000 families with food and hygiene kits in partnership with UNICEF. We have also distributed cash to 1,700 vulnerable families, including more than 5,600 children. We also now partnered with the government to launch a television and social media campaign on COVID-19 prevention and child protection, especially during quarantines, that will reach 75,000 people.
