A report by the World Health Organization states that despite testing in North Korea, not a single case of infection with the corona virus has been reported. According to the report, North Korea conducted corona virus tests of about 42,000 people, but none of them were found to be infected with the virus. According to the WHO’s Covid-19 Weekly Report, from October 8-14, a total of 678 North Koreans tested positive for the virus, but all tested negative.
The Yonhap news agency quoted the report as saying that the new tests conducted revealed a flu-like acute respiratory infection disease in 113 people, while everyone else was healthy. So far, a total of 42,773 people of North Korea have been tested for corona. North Korea has claimed to be free of the corona virus by taking anti-virus measures, including strict border controls. Let us inform that the total number of cases of corona virus infection in the world has reached the figure of 245 million and this disease has killed 49.7 lakh people so far.
In view of the dangerous situation of Corona, it is surprising that North Korea, a country with a population of more than 25 million, is left untouched by it. Such countries have also been affected by this deadly virus whose population is in thousands. Even in North Korea’s neighboring country South Korea, more than 3.5 lakh cases of corona have been reported and 2788 people have died.
