As a mirror image of what the world has faced for the past two years due to the Covid outbreak, North Korea is facing the same. After reporting the first case, the nationwide lockdown was imposed to contain the virus. But the decision is not helping the nation in any manner.

From day one imposing the lockdown, North Korea is seeing a steady growth in the fresh infections and fatalities. Now the state run outlet had reportedly said that the Covid is ringing the danger bells with the rapid spread of the pandemic.

To show the disaster in the nation now, lakhs of people are suffering from the Covid related symptoms and the experts have dubbed the cases as suspected cases. The section of cases have a high possibility of turning positive of Covid.

On the other hand, half a million if confirmed cases are there in the nation and the health system was hit hard by the massive hospitalisations. No one can understand how the virus is spreading like this when lockdown was imposed.

Being in the middle of the disaster, North Korea has called in the Military forces so that the Covid medicines and other supplies can be distributed to the Covid patients and suspected cases without any interaction.

While the reason behind the virus spread is not known yet, many say that North Korea Supremo Kim Jong-un and a few others took part in the last rites of a veteran public servant.
