"The capital Ulan Bator and all 21 provinces need to be quarantined from Tuesday until March 16 to curb the outbreak. In other words, any vehicle such as cars and trains are not allowed to enter or leave the capital or rural cities until next Monday," the SEC said in a statement.

The move came after a French national tested positive for the novel coronavirus, becoming the first confirmed Wuhan coronavirus case in Mongolia.

Panama has confirmed its first case of the new coronavirus.

The patient is a Panamanian woman who had returned Sunday from Madrid. While only a few dozen cases have been confirmed in Latin America, the epidemic is growing in Europe. Spain is among four European countries with more than 1,000 cases each.

Panama's Health Minister Rosario Turner said yesterday the 40 year old woman's positive test was confirmed at the Instituto Conmemorativo Gorgas.

The woman is isolated at home and will receive daily visits from health workers.

Burkina Faso has confirmed its first two cases of Wuhan coronavirus, Minister of Health Claudine Louge announced Monday evening during a press conference.

According to Louge, the two patients are a couple and the wife recently returned from France. The patients now are quarantined in a local hospital in Ouagadougou, capital of the country.

A third person who is a close contact is under observation, the minister added.
