North Korea Claims Ending First COVID-19 Wave

North Korea’s new suspected COVID-19 cases have stayed at zero for a week while efforts are being made to restore normalcy amidst continuous antiviral measures.

According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a state emergency anti-epidemic headquarters report said there were no new fever cases reported until 6 p.m. the previous day over the course of a 24-hour period. 

The initial KCNA report contained no additional information, while a second reported item said that the country has reportedly entered a “certain phase of stability” in terms of its viral condition.

KCNA stated all fever patients receiving treatment have recovered.

“As no new fever cases were reported during the past week and all those receiving treatments have recovered across the country, the overall anti-epidemic situation of the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) has entered a definite phase of stability,” KCNA said in the English-language report. 

KCNA also said that health officials were working to intensify management and control of the situation in order to get back to regular life and activities for everyone in society as quickly as possible.
