ULAN BATOR, March 22 (Xinhua) -- Mongolia will delay the opening dates of all schools and international flights in a bid to stem the spread of COVID-19, a senior official said on Sunday.

Ulziisaikhan Enkhtuvshin, head of the State Emergency Commission, said that all public and private kindergartens, schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions across Mongolia will reopen on April 30 instead of March 30.

Mongolia also decided to suspend all international flights and international passenger train services until the end of April, Enkhtuvshin added.

Furthermore, the country will kick off a two-week campaign to disinfect all public and private areas across the country starting from Monday, said the official.

As of Sunday morning, a total of 10 people, nine Mongolian citizens and a French national, tested positive for COVID-19 in the country and their conditions remain stable, according to the country's National Center for Communicable Disease. Enditem
