First death due to corona in North Korea, 2 lakh people isolated, Kim orders strict lockdown


A patient died after receiving the first case of corona in North Korea on Friday. At the same time, five people were also identified in which corona has not been confirmed. According to state media, 187,000 people in the country are currently experiencing symptoms of the famine, which has left them isolated.

The first case of corona was reported in North Korea on 8 May. This was confirmed with the nationwide lockdown on Thursday. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), North Korea tested samples from 13,259 people by the end of 2020. All these reports have come negative.

According to reports, people in the capital Pyongyang suddenly started getting fever at the end of April. The fever spread outside Pyongyang. The virus has been detected in a total of 350,000 people so far. However, the number of people found corona positive has not been disclosed.

According to reports, North Korea is currently in a state of corona explosion. Experts believe that 25 million people living in the country are at risk, as neither one will be vaccinated nor will they get good health care. Meanwhile, the outbreak seems to be intensifying.

Actually, North Korea has categorically refused to buy the vaccine made in countries like Britain and China. Instead, the government said it would close all borders in January 2020 to prevent corona from entering the country.

Experts believe that the real threat to North Korea is not the corona, but the lockdown. A large part of the population is still malnourished. Trade has also declined in the last two years due to border closures. Due to the lockdown, there may be a further shortage in food items.

During a meeting on Thursday regarding Corona, Kim Jong Un was seen wearing a mask on TV for the first time. Emergency orders have been issued to control this virus in the country.
