Kim Jong's claim again, not a single Corona case in Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has again claimed that there is not a single case of Kovid-19 in North Korea. According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), at a party meeting on Thursday, he said that despite the health crisis in the world, the country has kept the risk of infection. Simultaneously, Kim Jong has asked the authorities to be vigilant about the Corona virus epidemic and warned that a slight negligence could lead to a major crisis.
Although North Korea has been repeatedly claiming that there has not been a single case of infection, other countries are not confident of this claim, given the poor health facilities and proximity to China.
North Korea shut down all traffic on the border earlier this year to prevent the corona virus. Restrictions were imposed on the arrival of tourists and people were kept separate if any symptoms were found. Experts say the lockdown imposed in the country has had an impact on the economy. 
The country is already facing US sanctions because of nuclear weapons and missile programs. According to KCNA, during the Worker's Party Politburo meeting, Kim insisted on taking maximum vigilance without any easing, as the infection continues to spread in neighboring countries.
