Let us inform that on May 8, the first case of corona was reported in North Korea. This was confirmed on Thursday and with this a lockdown was imposed across the country. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), North Korea had tested samples of 13,259 people by the end of 2020. All of these reports came negative.

So far, symptoms of fever have been seen in a total of 350,000 people in North Korea.
According to the country’s KCNA news agency, at the end of April in the capital Pyongyang, people suddenly started falling prey to fever. This fever spread and spread outside Pyongyang. So far, symptoms of this fever have been seen in a total of 3,50,000 people. However, the agency has not disclosed how many of these people have been found to be corona positive.
No one vaccinated in the country
Experts believe that the fever spreading in the country could actually be an Omicron variant of Corona.
According to the BBC report, North Korea may be in a state of corona explosion at this time. Experts believe that 25 million people living in the country are in danger, because no one will get the vaccine here, nor will they get good health facilities. The fever spreading here could actually be an Omicron variant of the corona.
Actually, North Korea had flatly refused to buy the vaccine made in countries like Britain and China. Instead, the government said that it had stopped Corona from entering the country by closing all borders in January 2020.
lockdown can become real danger
Kim Jong was first seen wearing a mask on TV in a meeting on Corona on Thursday.
Experts believe that the real threat to North Korea is not the corona, but the lockdown. A large part of the population is also suffering from malnutrition. Due to the closure of the borders for the last two years, the trade has come down anyway. Now with the imposition of lockdown, there may be a further shortage in food and medicines.
According to the BBC, we have no idea at the moment how strict the lockdown in North Korea can be. It may be that dictator Kim Jong Un is indicating to the world to seek help by telling his real condition.
Kim Jong was first seen wearing a mask on TV in a meeting on Corona on Thursday. To control the virus in the country, maximum emergency has been ordered, which includes protocols like non-crowding at workplaces and local lockdown.
