Covid-19 threat: North Korea puts Kaesong city in lockdown

Jul 26, 2020 09:18 IST

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un placed the city of Kaesong near the border with South Korea under total lockdown after a person was found with suspected Covid-19 symptoms.
State media quoted Kim as saying that he believes 'the vicious virus' may have entered the country. The Korean Central News Agency said the suspected case is a runaway who had fled to South Korea years ago before illegally crossing the border into the North early last week.
North Korea has said it has no single virus case on its territory, a claim questioned by outside experts. If the person is officially declared a virus patient, he or she would be the North's first confirmed coronavirus case.
