Goods clearing out of North Korean disinfection zone 3 months after trade freeze
Satellite imagery appears to reconfirm suspected quarantine period for DPRK’s overland imports from China
Goods have begun to clear out from North Korea’s large-scale import disinfection and quarantine complex near the Chinese border, three months after the two sides suspended train deliveries due to surging COVID-19 cases, NK Pro satellite imagery analysis shows.
The move could mean North Koreans will soon see more medicine and other scarce foreign goods arrive on store shelves.
NK Pro previously reported on multiple sources claiming authorities were enforcing a three-month quarantine period at the Uiju Airport complex to avoid COVID-19 contamination. Imagery previously suggested items began exiting the complex around three months
