North Korea’s Kim Jong Un says there are no coronavirus cases in his country


“Not a single person” in the north was infected with the coronavirus, said Kim Jong Un.


North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told the audience at a military parade on Saturday that he was grateful that “not a single person” in the north had infected the coronavirus, which has swept the world since it began in neighboring China.

Pyongyang closed its borders in January to protect itself from the disease and regularly said there had been no cases, but the state media had shied away from such explicit statements in recent months and instead emphasized the importance of prevention efforts.
