It is reported that North Korea performed a concert to celebrate the New Year when crowds were crowded even in the emergency quarantine situation of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) earlier this year, and there have been reports of sporadically sporadically showing signs of coronavirus suspicion such as bill fever and even death. .
A source in Pyongyang told Daily NK on the 13th, “After the New Year’s celebration, new fever symptoms appeared, and only 32 people were counted among the number of participants in the event by area, unit, and organization.”
Previously, Chosun JoongAng TV broadcasted a live performance for the New Year’s celebration held at Kim Il-Sung Plaza in Pyongyang for 50 minutes from 11 pm on the 31st of last month.
The scenes of residents crowded in the plaza cheering at the singers and dancers singing and dancing on the stage were witnessed several times on the broadcast screens at the time. All of the residents who watched the performance were wearing masks, but the national quarantine regulations called ‘to keep distance’ seemed to be sticking together.
In this regard, a source said, “The officials, workers (workers), and doctors of five quarantine stations, including the Central Emergency Management Committee and the Central District, were mobilized to check whether participants wore masks at the entrance one hour before the start of the performance, and allowed to enter after heating. “Even when departing by region, unit, or institution, we have already self-inspected the condition of wearing a mask and fever at the site.”
However, after the event, among those who went as spectators at the time, residents complaining of fever began to appear, and recently, two people, including a 55-year-old grandmother, a party secretary in Gyeongheung-dong, Jung-gu, Pyongyang, have symptoms of high fever and shortness of breath. It is a message that he died in three days after showing his.
A source said, “The people who died were cremated at the Obongsan crematorium, treated separately, and then returned the bone meal.” “Other residents who showed fever symptoms after the performance are in self-isolation with their families.”
At the same time, he explained the reason why the residents gathered in this way even in the situation where the authorities advocate emergency quarantine. “There is a special event (the 8th party conference) that will engrave the way in the motherland in the history of the Party. “It was because there was an instruction from the party to participate with political enthusiasm and create an atmosphere of great transformation.”
Meanwhile, North Korea is emphasizing daily emergency quarantine even into the New Year. Earlier on the 8th, the labor newspaper of the North Korean Labor Party reported in an article titled’Let’s raise the public’s awareness of quarantine even more’. “Emergency quarantine projects are an important revolutionary task that must be carried out in the first place in all post offices and workplaces. He urged the attention that it is the people’s awareness of quarantine that must continue to rise until the global health crisis is over.”
“One of the most important factors influencing the success or failure of this project is the high quarantine consciousness that the entire people, who are the subject of quarantine, must firmly hold and maintain until the end.” “All workers, party members, workers, and residents have a national emergency. He said, “We must do our part in today’s emergency quarantine war by absolutely obeying the quarantine measures and implementing them most accurately.”
In addition, newspapers are emphasizing the importance of quarantine by reporting examples of units and regions that are exemplary for emergency quarantine projects, such as observing quarantine regulations well and showing active quarantine measures and efforts.
