#NorthKorea insists it has still not found any cases of #COVID19 in the country, two months after it shut borders, and imposed strict restrictions to curb the spread of the virus.

“Fortunately, up until now not one person infected with COVID-2019 has been found in our country,” Pak Myong Su, President of the State Sanitary Inspection Board said Wednesday in Pyongyang.

Pak added that from the beginning of the outbreak strict inspection and quarantine measures for people coming from foreign countries had been implemented.

“We shut our borders and completely blocked all air and sea travel,” he explained. “Up until now this blockade measure has been taken continuously. We should strengthen further the anti-epidemic work to prevent COVID-2019 coming into our country and take all the measures thoroughly not to let occur even one infection from COVID-2019.”

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un highlighted the strictness of precautions against the new coronvirus in a politburo meeting at the end of February.
