Mongolia receives medical equipment from abroad to fight COVID-19

The European Union and World Health Organisation had sent medical equipment and tools to Mongolia to aid the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The assistance included mobile health technology equipment and rapid tests, the country’s health ministry said Tuesday.

The supply is part of a three-year project co-funded by the EU and WHO in October 2020 to provide support and technical guidance to Mongolia’s health sector.

As of Tuesday, Mongolia had registered a total of 32,437 COVID-19 cases, with more than 90 deaths.

Most of the total confirmed cases were locally transmitted. (Xinhua/NAN)
