North Korea insists it stays completely freed from coronavirus, sparking world skepticism, as nearly each different nation on the earth has reported circumstances.
The nation shut down its borders and imposed strict containment measures in January after information unfold that the virus was detected in neighbouring China.
“Not one single person has been infected with the novel coronavirus in our country so far”, stated Pak Myong Su, director of North Korea’s Central Emergency Anti-epidemic Headquarters.
“We have carried out pre-emptive and scientific measures such as inspections and quarantine for all personnel entering our country and thoroughly disinfecting all goods, as well as closing borders and blocking sea and air lanes”, he added.
The World Health Organization on Wednesday stated there have been nearly a million confirmed infections globally. Observers fear that the unfold of the virus could possibly be catastrophic for North Korea, which is especially susceptible due to its weak medical system and worldwide sanctions that led to meals shortages.
