Pyongyang General Hospital project misses Kim Jong Un’s ambitious deadline
The North Korean leader previously alluded to construction delays due to the recent spate of natural disasters
North Korea is now nearly a week past Kim Jong Un’s original deadline to open the new Pyongyang General Hospital, and there are still no signs of an opening ceremony or of finished construction.
The hospital could still open in the coming days or weeks, but other signs suggest that the project will be delayed until early Jan. 2021, around the time of the Eighth Party Congress.
