Yesterday I went to the Mongolian Airlines main office and was stopped at the door by a guard because I was not wearing a face mask. Fortunately there were entrepreneurial types on the sidewalk outside selling face masks for 200 togrogs (a little less than 20 cents). A teacher at the Mongolian State University told me that now all teachers and students must wear masks while at lectures. And an informal study I did in front of the busy State Department Store revealed that about 75% of passersby were wearing face masks. Other than that, no new news about the Killer Virus on Mongolia front.
