North Korea claims to be over the Covid-19 pandemic

  • For the seventh day in a row, the state media stated that there were no incidences of fever.
  • The nation first reported a Covid outbreak in May, and since then, fever illnesses and fatalities have been documented.
  • The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) announced that “no new fever cases were detected during the last week and all those undergoing treatment have recovered across the country.

Since the nation confirmed its initial Covid-19 illnesses, North Korea claims that everyone who became ill has recovered.

For the seventh day in a row, the state media stated that there were no incidences of fever. Due to a lack of testing tools, North Korea refers to “fever” patients rather than “Covid” patients.

The nation first reported a Covid outbreak in May, and since then, fever illnesses and fatalities have been documented.

However, there is considerable skepticism over the numbers, particularly the death toll.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) announced that “no new fever cases were detected during the last week and all those undergoing treatment have recovered across the country.”

The government would “redouble efforts to maintain perfection in the execution of state anti-epidemic programs,” it was stated, adding that North Korea has reached an era of “stability”.

The number of individuals who tested positive for Covid has not been confirmed by Pyongyang.

However, according to official media, 4.77 million fever sufferers have totally recovered and 74 have passed away since late April, the lowest death rate in the world at 0.002 percent.

These facts are difficult for many professionals to believe.

According to experts, North Korea’s healthcare system is among the worst in the world, and there are no vaccines or medications for treating COVID-19 there.

Official statistics show that South Korea, which has a state-of-the-art healthcare system and a population that is heavily immunized, has a reported Covid fatality rate of 0.12%.

According to Shin Young-Jeon, a professor at Hanyang University’s medical school in Seoul, the death toll could reach 50,000 and North Korea’s claimed casualties were almost certainly exaggerated.

For inter-Korean ties, South Korea’s Unification Minister Kwon Young-se said last week that although the statistics had “credibility issues,” Covid appeared to be “largely under control” in the North.
