Mongolia is a fairly large country geographically:
But it is a very small country in terms of population–only about 3.5 million.
It is located in a harsh part of the world climate-wise–on an unforgiving steppe sandwiched between the Gobi Desert to the south and Siberia to the north.
Despite bordering China, Mongolia experienced almost no cases of Covid following the virus’ outbreak in late 2019.
I don’t know this for certain, but I’d imagine there really isn’t a ton of international travel in and out of Mongolia. It’s not exactly a tourism hot-spot This is probably why the country didn’t really “participate” in the global pandemic like the rest of us.
However, this March, cases in Mongolia started rising:
For the first full year of Covid, Mongolia only had 5 total deaths from the virus.
But that started to change in March of 2021:
Relatively speaking, deaths from Covid went through the roof. The country now has 1,159 Covid deaths after having just 5 total from October 2019 to March 2021.
What the hell is going on in Mongolia?
Is it 😳THE DELTA VARIANT😳?
But for some reason, despite being almost completely unaffected by Covid for over a year, Mongolia started mass-vaccinating its population in late February 2021:
And then, a few short weeks later, right around March 9-12, Covid cases started taking off.
How did this happen? You might say that Mongolia started vaccinating in response to suddenly-rising cases of Covid, but the vaccination drive began a bit before the Covid cases started taking off, which leads one to a conclusion that one is not supposed to arrive at.
It’s all there on Google. Check for yourself at this link if you don’t believe me.
It almost appears that Mongolia only started having problems with Covid once the vaccine was introduced. It’s now 65.8% fully vaccinated and yet cases have never been higher.
I am no expert on Mongolian Covid policy. Maybe they locked the nation down entirely to the outside world and only started opening it up once they rolled out the vaccines. At that point, in came the virus to a population with little to no herd immunity. Of course, I doubt there would be any sort of mass flood of visitors into Mongolia, but it’s possible–that along with people in Mongolia stopping whatever anti-Covid precautions they were taking (masks, social distancing) once they got their vaccine shots.
I mean, you could say the variants are causing the spike in cases, but then you’d have to ask why there was basically no Covid in Mongolia prior to the vaccine. And then you’d have to ask if maybe the vaccines are causing the variants.
If you look at the charts above, you can see that the more people got vaccinated, the more people got Covid.
This is chilling, disturbing stuff when you start thinking about why Mongolia is only undergoing a spike in Covid after it began rolling out the vaccines. The mind tends to wander towards some pretty sinister explanations.
The media noted the outbreak in Mongolia back in June and blamed it on their use of Chinese vaccines. The article is entitled “They Relied on Chinese Vaccines. Now They’re Battling Outbreaks.”
Guess that’s what they get for shunning Big US Pharma 💁♀️💁♀️💁♀️
