The current situation with the spread of the “fever” epidemic in the DPRK shows a positive trend from rapid growth at the beginning to a decrease. This is reported by the Central Telegraph Agency of the DPRK (CTAC) on the website with reference to a statement by the authorities. about 186 thousand people became infected, which is 36 thousand less than the previous figure. During the same period, only one person died from the infection (compared to six the day before). Thus, from the beginning of the spread of the “fever” in the country, 67 patients died from it.
At the same time, more than 299 thousand people recovered from the infection per day, which is also 17 thousand more than on May 21. Since the start of the pandemic, 2.646 million people have fallen ill in the country.
The North Korean authorities for the first time officially recognized the case of infection with COVID-19 only on May 12. The head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, called for stopping all ways for the spread of the virus and strengthening border controls. A few days later he called “fever” the biggest shock since the founding of the country and compared it with the spread of the new coronavirus around the world.
The South Korean agency Yonhap wrote that the DPRK may not specify the number of people infected with coronavirus due to a lack of tests and other equipment to confirm the infection. South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol has several times offered to send vaccines or other necessary materials to the DPRK, but Pyongyang has not yet agreed.
In turn, the North Korean authorities involved the military and other employees of the Ministry of Defense in the delivery of medicines. They also began to educate residents about the stealth-omicron strain of the coronavirus, as well as anti-epidemic rules. Teachers and students of the medical training institution were involved in the medical examinations. Medicines factories have increased production volumes.
