North Korea confirms 15 new Covid deaths as fever cases ‘explode’
The Metro says spiralling numbers of Covid cases have led to a major medical mobilisation in North Korea.
State media has confirmed 15 more deaths and says hundreds of thousands of patients are struggling with ‘high fevers.’
Yesterday, Kim Jong-un conceded the outbreak was a ‘great disaster’.
The admission follows contentious claims North Korea had been ‘coronavirus-free’ during the last two years.
A fever has reportedly spread through the country ‘explosively’ since April, but little has been disclosed on the exact number of positive cases.
The confirmed number of fatalities in North Korea stands at 42.
