    The paper did not report on any confirmed infection in the North but suggested that there might be some suspected cases in the southeastern region of the country.

    "Officials are stationed for those quarantined in (the Kangwon Province) and measures are being drawn up to ensure that they are receiving protective clothes and medical items, such as masks," it said.

        The North Korean military's winter training seems to have been halted due to the confirmed outbreak of Wuhan pneumonia in North Korea. The North Korean news agency reported that North Korea's winter training was suspended due to an urgent order by the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army.

        Since the outbreak of the new Corose virus in Wuhan, China, in December last year, North Korean authorities have been very wary of Wuhan pneumonia, which demands a tight crackdown on Chinese entry into North Korea and prevents the return of North Korean defectors. A few days ago, North Korea seemed to have nothing to do with the situation until Kim Jong-un delivered his specialty and consolation to Xi Jinping. On February 3, however, a North Korean correspondent at the Liberty Korea Post reported that North Korean authorities had completely concealed the outbreak of Wuhan pneumonia. The confirmed pneumonia was the wife of two North Korean women who worked in foreign currency in Shandong, China, and a North Korean consulate in Qingdao. . On January 20, they reported on the news that North Korean workers in China, such as Yonhap News, lined up to buy tickets as they returned home for the explanation clause. .

        The new corona virus-Wuhan pneumonia is the biggest evil in the North Korean system where group life is the basis of human infection. How urgently, would the North Korean military winter training be interrupted by the Supreme Commander's urgent order? If Wuhan pneumonia spreads, the base of the North Korean military barracks could collapse in a moment.

        The fate of 25 million North Koreans depends on how North Korea, the world's worst medically underdeveloped country, accepts the Pyongyang pneumonia.

          By Koh Byung-joon

          SEOUL, Feb. 6 (Yonhap) -- North Korea is preparing to examine drinking water sources, such as rivers and lakes, to make sure that the new coronavirus won't flow into the country, state media reported Thursday.

          The move is the latest in a series of measures that the North has taken to fight the fast-spreading virus that originated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year.

            North Korea clarifies no Wuhan pneumonia diagnosis confirmed to prevent virus invasion

            Global Social Hot Spots 11:42 2020/02/06

            North Korea has taken the lead in closing the new coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan, but media reports in South Korea say that North Korea has confirmed seven cases of Wuhan pneumonia, including the wife of a North Korean consulate staff member. North Korean official media have denied reporting and clarified that there is no confirmed case of Wuhan pneumonia, but stressed that even so, North Korea should not relax its vigilance and is preventing new coronavirus invasion.

            South Korean media "Free Korea Post" earlier reported that North Korea currently has seven confirmed patients, including a North Korean restaurant waitress, who had previously worked in China's Shandong Province for foreign currency exchange and the wife of a North Korean consulate staff member in Qingdao.

            However, North Korea does not have a consulate in Qingdao, making this news questionable.

            North Korean official media "Democratic North Korea" also clarified on Thursday that North Korea had no confirmed case of Wuhan pneumonia.

            According to official media, even so, North Korea should not relax its vigilance and emphasize that preventing new coronavirus invasion is not only a matter of preventing infectious diseases, but also a political matter of demonstrating the superiority of the socialist system.

            "Democratic North Korea" states that preventing new coronavirus invasions is to block borders and strengthen personal hygiene.

            North Korea has begun customs clearance as early as January 23, restricting everyone from going to North Korea, and preventing China from sending North Koreans back to North Korea to reduce the chance of Wuhan pneumonia outbreak in North Korea.

                [Wuhan pneumonia] North Korea is reported to have 5 dead after North Korean media denies
                global

                2020-02-07 21:04:00

                The outbreak of a new coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, China has spread to the world. Although North Korea has denied its own case, some media have claimed that 5 people have died from Wuhan pneumonia in North Korea.

                Korean media's "Daily NK" website reported on February 7 that a number of sources in the Ping An Road said on the 7th that 5 people had died of fever in hospitals in Sinuiju and nearby areas. They speculated that these patients may be infected with a coronavirus.

                The sources also said that North Korean authorities have ordered public health officials in Sinuiju to dispose of the bodies quickly and keep the death toll confidential.
                The pneumonia epidemic in Wuhan is spreading globally, and North Korea is very occluded. It is difficult for the outside world to know its internal conditions accurately. According to some media reports, there have been multiple confirmed cases in North Korea. (AFP)
                The new type of coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China together with New Year's Eve, and the situation is fierce, with more than 30,000 confirmed cases in China. (Reuters)

                A source in Ping'an Province told the newspaper that at the end of January, one of the patients went to a hospital in Xinyizhou due to cold-like symptoms, and the doctor prescribed antipyretics and antibiotics. The patient's condition worsened and he died. Check the latest epidemic situation click [Wuhan pneumonia real-time development]

                Several sources in the newspaper said that two days later, two patients at another hospital in Xinyizhou were given medication to treat their high fever, but eventually died. Two other patients reportedly died in early February in a hospital in Uiju-gun near Sinuiju.

                It is reported that the World Health Organization (WHO) has not formally confirmed any cases of Wuhan Coronavirus infection in North Korea. However, the World Health Organization's infection case data is based on reports provided by the North Korean government, which means that the accuracy of the WHO data is limited.

                This is not the first time that North Korea has been infected with Wuhou pneumonia. South Korea's "Free Korea Post" reported on February 6 that there had been confirmed cases in North Korea on February 3. So far, 7 people have been confirmed, including one A North Korean woman working in Shandong, China, as well as a staff member of the North Korean Consulate in Qingdao and his wife.

                However, North Korean official media "Democratic North Korea" reiterated in a comment entitled "Further Strengthening the Role of Emergency Defense Commands at All Levels" on February 6 that North Korea has not had a confirmed case of infection with the new coronavirus.

                  ...But reports have filtered out about Kim’s subjects falling prey to coronavirus despite the country’s decision to seal its 880-mile border with China, most of it along the Yalu River into the Yellow Sea to the west, and its 11-mile border with Russia where the Tumen River flows into the Pacific.

                  Among the first to report fatalities in North Korea, the Seoul-based website Daily NK said five people had died in the critical northwestern city of Sinuiju, on the Yalu River across road and rail bridges from Dandong, which is the largest Chinese city in the region and a key point for commerce with North Korea despite sanctions....
                  ...One of the first patients in North Korea reportedly was hospitalized in Sinuiju “with symptoms similar to a cold and was given fever reducers and antibiotics,” said Daily NK, but the patient died as the fever rose. Two more patients died two days later in another hospital in Sinuiju and another two in a nearby town....https://www.thedailybeast.com/north-...is-crazy-scary

                    February 10, 2020 11:07 Sources report several coronavirus infections in North Korea although the isolated country has shut all its borders and banned foreign visitors. The disease now seems to have spread to Pyongyang, where the elite live in dense clusters.
