The number of people infected with the epidemic in North Korea exceeds 10% of the population

In North Korea, the number of people infected with the “epidemic” has reached 2.64 million – more than 10% of the country’s population, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

For the first time in nearly 10 days, the number of new fever cases has fallen below 200,000 per day.

As of May 21, the total number of cases in the country is 2,646,730 people. The total number of deaths is 67.

“Currently, the prevalence of infectious diseases in our country has moved from rapid growth in the initial stage to a declining trend,” the report says.

Based on information in the state media of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, it can be assumed that the coronavirus epidemic is spreading in the country, but there is no accurate data on the number of hyperthermic patients infected with COVID-19.

On May 12, North Korea reported the first case of the coronavirus in the country’s history. At an emergency meeting of the Politburo, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un said that an emergency situation had suddenly arisen in the DPRK due to the coronavirus, and called for the most stringent measures to be taken against the “malignant virus.”

By order of Kim Jong-un, the People’s Army’s Military Medical Forces participated in the “stabilization of medicine supplies to Pyongyang”.
