Two cases of bubonic plague have been confirmed recently in the neighboring province of Khovd.
According to the NCZD, immunization against marmot plague is being organized nationwide from June 15 to July 20, 2020.
As of July 8, 2020, the national immunization coverage against marmot plague was 32.1 percent. Of these, Govisumber, Darkhan and Khuvsgul aimags have been fully immunized. Sukhbaatar, Zavkhan, Dornod, Dornogovi, Dundgovi and Gobi-Altai aimags have immunization coverage of more than 50 percent.
Residents of some regions with natural foci of marmot epidemic are not sufficiently vaccinated against the disease, so those who need to be vaccinated should contact the relevant aimag, soum and district health centers and zoonoses research centers and actively participate.
