These are the first photos of Western tourists trapped in a city where they are imprisoned following a suspected fatal outbreak of bubonic plague.
The footage shows tourists sing a song to uphold morality, and it is claimed that they have not left Uglii in Mongolia due to the bacterial disease Black Death.
It killed a man and his pregnant wife, both in their thirties, last week.
The travelers are understood from the USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and South Korea.
The dramatic new photos show how they wear face masks in western Mongolia. The quarantine system is a desperate attempt to prevent the spread of bubonic plague.
The groups are locked up in hotels, according to reports.
Other images from the capital, Ulaanbaatar, have shown that at least one plane was hit by anti-contamination personnel to prevent the spread of the disease.
The tragic Mongolian couple, reportedly dead of the plague, became infected after eating the raw kidneys of a groundhog.
The man named Citizen T, 38, died on April 27 after chasing and eating a groundhog. His pregnant wife, 37, died three days later.
Russian tourists told of the closure that prevented the international travelers from leaving.
“The city is closed for some pest-infested marmots,” wrote traveler Elena Kovena from Kemerovo in Siberia.
“That’s just so surreal.”
She said, “Did you think that the plague was something of a dark age?
“We were about to leave Ulgii to go deeper into Mongolia, but all the outlets of the city were closed and we were not allowed to go.”
The tourists were told that they could be stuck for up to 21 days, reported the Siberian period.
“We were told to wait for updates on Monday, May 6,” Timur Konev said.
“Today six nationalities have teamed up to plan the escape route.
“We talked to the local administration and the local police, but they did not allow us.”
In Uglii, a total of 158 people who have come into direct or indirect contact with the couple are “under supervision”.
The plague is a bacterial disease that is spread by fleas that live on rodents like groundhogs.
The disease can kill an adult within 24 hours if not treated on time, says the World Health Organization.
It is believed that the plague is the cause of the Black Death, which spread in Asia, Europe and Africa in the 14th century and killed an estimated 50 million people.
