Kim Jong-un calls North Korea’s response to Covid outbreak ‘inadequate’

The Guardian says North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has criticised his country’s response to its first officially confirmed Covid-19 outbreak as “immature”, accusing government officials of inadequacies and inertia as fever cases swept the country.

On Wednesday, North Korea reported 232,880 more people with fever symptoms, and six more deaths, a week after the country’s first admission of the Covid outbreak. It did not say how many people had tested positive for Covid-19.

Presiding over a politburo meeting of the ruling Workers’ party, Kim said the “immaturity in the state capacity for coping with the crisis” increased the “complexity and hardships” in fighting the pandemic when “time is the life”, state media reported on Wednesday.
