North Korea records another deadly disease

The North Korean Government has announced another outbreak of a deadly disease in the country while still struggling to curb the spread of COVID-19 presently ravaging its citizens.

According to Pyongyang, on Thursday, more than 26,000 new cases of fever had been confirmed within 24 hours through 6 p.m. Wednesday, bringing the total number to around 4.56 million since late April, adding that the accumulated number of deaths during the period stood at 73.

Speaking to the press, the North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un, who had confirmed the new disease outbreak, instructed medical officials to implement measures including quarantine, medical treatment and sterilization in a bid to contain an acute enteric epidemic.
