The leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, on Saturday, October 10, announced that the country is free of Coronavirus.
Kim Jong-Un disclosed this while attending a parade in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Democratic Workers’ Party of Korea in Pyongyang on Saturday.
While discussing North Korea’s approach to dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 36-year-old dictator wiped away tears as he claimed North Korea had “zero” cases of the deadly virus.
Kim Jong-Un said, “I wish good health to all the people around the world who are fighting the ills of the evil virus.”
The North Korean leader then thanked his nation for continuing to work during the pandemic and completing work on new weapons of mass destruction.
Kim Jong-Un said, “I am ashamed that I have never been able to repay you properly for your enormous trust. My efforts and devotion were not sufficient to bring our people out of difficult livelihoods.”
Analysts have expressed doubt over Kim’s claims that North Korea is COVID-free. They also criticized the dictator and his military for hosting a giant demonstration attended by many people without face masks and no social distancing.
