Dictator decreed the end of social isolation measures and celebrated the fact that the country has no cases of the disease; international organizations contest the demonstration
Despite Kim Jong-Un’s announcement, entities contested the claim that the country had beaten Covid-19
the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, told state media on Thursday, 11, – still Wednesday, 10, in Brazil – that his country has overcome Covid-19, announced the end of social isolation measures and celebrated the fact that republic has no cases of coronavirus. The information, however, was contested by international organizations. The totalitarian’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong, reported that Un is not feeling well and had a high fever. “Even seriously ill and with a high fever, he couldn’t lie down, thinking about the people he had to take care of,” she said. In an “unprecedented miracle”, according to the North Korean government, Pyongyan has never counted cases of Covi-19 and, since last Thursday, almost 5 million patients with malaise and fever have fully recovered from their symptoms. In total, there were 73 deaths from Covid-19 in the country. International entities argue that the low number of confirmed cases in Korea is due to the fact that there are few tests in the country to perform the diagnosis and monitor the proliferation of the respiratory disease.
