North Korea declares 'major national emergency' as first case of Covid-19 identified, resoconti dei media statali

La Corea del Nord ha identificato il suo primo caso in assoluto di Covid-19, Lo hanno riferito i media statali mercoledì.

L'agenzia di stampa statale KCNA ha riportato il caso della variante Omicron nella capitale Pyongyang, calling the situation amajor national emergency.
It is not clear how many cases have been detected.
    An outbreak of Covid-19 could prove dire for North Korea. The country’s dilapidated health care infrastructure is unlikely to be up to the task of treating a large number of patients with a highly infectious disease.
      North Korea had not previously acknowledged any coronavirus cases, though experts claim that may be a product of Pyongyang’s limited testing capacity.
          Few believe that a country of around 25 million people has been spared by a virus that has infected millions worldwide, especially after its state media warned in 2020 that an incident involving a symptomatic defector from South Korea might lead to adeadly and destructive disaster.
          Questa è una storia in evoluzione. More to come.
