New activity at North Korean COVID quarantine zone may signal goods on the move
Imported goods from China might be leaving border disinfection area 3 months after arriving
Activity has increased this month at a previously quiet section of a large-scale North Korean import disinfection zone near the Chinese border, suggesting goods may have begun leaving the zone after nearly three months of COVID-19-related quarantine.
Planet Labs imagery of the Uiju Airport disinfection complex near Sinuiju shows that, starting in the final days of March and continuing through April 19, goods began to appear and move around at an outdoor storage area located to the east of the quarantine zone on the main runway.
