The day before, the DPRK was assured that there was not a single case of infection in the country. This was stated by the director of the Epidemiological Disease Control Division of the National Center for Epidemic Control Park Myung-soo. According to him, such a result was achieved thanks to measures taken by the authorities, including of a preventive nature.
A meeting was recently convened in the DPRK to review a nationwide effort to combat the virus. It said that preventive work should be intensified – until the disease completely disappears on a global scale.

In February, the quarantine period for foreigners, DPRK citizens who visited abroad, and those who contacted such people, was extended to 30 days.
