An in-depth analysis of advice for recovered patients, a congress of Koreans in Japan and nuclear retaliation against US
North Korea state media exhorted citizens to follow epidemic rules this week even as the country claims to be bringing its COVID-19 outbreak under control, while devoting significant coverage to how those who have recovered should treat “aftereffects” ranging from headaches and lethargy to skin problems.
State television and the ruling party newspaper also reported on a letter that Kim Jong Un sent to a congress of North Koreans in Japan, calling for increased ideological education and struggle against the “schemes” of the U.S. and South Korea.
