After the first confirmation of a coronavirus outbreak in isolated North Korea, the number of fever cases in the country has risen to more than two million, according to official information. More than 263,000 cases were added yesterday, state media reported today, citing the Epidemic Prevention Emergency Headquarters.
There is no official confirmation as to whether those affected are infected with the corona virus because, according to experts, the country has hardly any testing capacities.
The total number of fever cases increased to more than 2.24 million. Around 1.49 million people are said to have already recovered. The number of deaths was given as 65. Almost 26 million people live in the country. The World Health Organization (WHO) assumes that there has not been any nationwide vaccination so far.
Despite the high number of fever-related illnesses, production in agriculture and factories is continuing as usual, state media reported.
