ULAN BATOR: Mongolia’s health ministry on Saturday urged its citizens to stay at home and not go out unless absolutely necessary as the prevalence of the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant is increasing significantly across the country.

The Delta variant has accounted for at least 50 percent of all Covid-19 cases in Mongolia recently, the ministry said in a statement.

The Asian country reported 1,651 new locally transmitted Covid-19 cases and four more deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the national counts to 191,899 and 896, according to the ministry.

The country reported its first imported Covid-19 case in March 2020 and confirmed its first locally transmitted case in November last year.  (Xinhua)
