Back to school: North Korea partially resumes high school, university classes

State media warns against loosening quarantine measures, however, to avoid "self-destruction"

North Korea has resumed some classes at high schools and universities in a "step by step" manner following an extended winter vacation aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19, the externally-focused state-run outlet Naenara reported Monday.

The report, along with a Weibo account run by Sogwang, another state-run outlet, also shared pictures of mask-clad students getting their temperatures checked at school entrances.
