Ulaanbaatar Mongolia



February, 2020

MUST There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Mongolia at present, but the country is considered to be at high risk. In late January, Mongolia banned public gatherings and shut its border with China out of concern that the coronavirus could enter the country. Schools and universities were also suspended through March 2. This suspension seems extend more three weeks. Because of this suspension, professors and students have been forbidden to come to the university. From 11th, January, 2020, rectorate of MUST made decision that the all university staff has been restricted to come to the office. All this unexpected situation influenced the implementation of the project. However, the project team is working hard to continue in many ways. Interim Financial Report has been finished and sent to TUS Professors of MUST have almost finished the preparation of teaching materials.
