2020 coronavirus pandemic in North Korea

There are no officially confirmed cases of COVID-19 in North Korea, although South Korean sources say that the disease is steadily affecting the country. The virus is more likely to have come into North Korea from China, where the virus originates, than from South Korea.

However, suspected COVID-19 cases in the two Chinese provinces (Liaoning and Jilin) bordering North Korea have been low.[1] Background North Korea is an impoverished country with weak healthcare infrastructure and is subject to sanctions, making it vulnerable in the event of an outbreak.[2][3] There is concern that widespread malnutrition could worsen the spread of COVID-19.[1] Diplomatically and economically isolated,[1] it borders China, the starting point of the pandemic, which is North Korea's closest ally, most important trading partner, and a source of tourists.[3][4] North Korea's government is secretive a
