The Kovid 19 pandemic has hit North Korea hard. Some international media outlets also reported that the country’s very weak health and treatment system had failed to treat a large number of patients. Kovid testing systems are also very weak in North Korea.
At present, no information has been released on the prevalence of Kovid 19 in the country and the number of deaths. Some reports suggest that North Korea is taking drastic measures to defend Kovid. As part of this, all the country’s borders have been closed since January 2020.
The Kim administration had executed two people for failing to stop Kovid’s defense. Kovid was executed by a customs official for illegally importing goods from China. There are reports that the country is heading towards a severe famine due to strict Kovid restrictions.
