North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country had perfectly prevented the coronavirus from entering its territory, while the infection had already appeared in 188 other countries around the world.
Kim spoke as chair of an expanded Thursday meeting of the Korean Labor Political Committee. According to the KCNA, the news agency of the communist country, the leader of the country warned against even the slightest manifestation of complacency and the loosening of measures against the epidemic. As he said, maximum vigilance is required.
The communist dictatorship has so far not provided any data on coronavirus infection, although it is neighboring China, from where the pathogen has spread around the world. (MTI)
