ULAN BATOR, April 22 (Xinhua) -- One more COVID-19 case has been confirmed in Mongolia, bringing the national total to 35, the country's National Center for Communicable Disease (NCCD) said Wednesday.

"The latest case is a Mongolian woman who is the wife of the 34th confirmed case," who "is a transport driver who traveled to Hungary through Russia on Feb. 21 to work" and the couple returned to Mongolia Saturday, Dulmaa Nyamkhuu, head of the NCCD, said at a press conference.

All the 35 confirmed cases in Mongolia, including four non-nationals, are imported ones, and eight of them, including two non-nationals, have recovered so far, according to the NCCD.

A French national tested positive for the virus on March 10, becoming the first case in Mongolia.
