The country’s state-run media KCNA reports that an outbreak of Omicron has occurred in the capital, Pyongyang. At this time he was seen wearing a mask for the first time.
Kim Jong Un is holding an emergency meeting to prepare for dealing with the outbreak. However, North Korea’s official statement on Wednesday said it had identified the Kovid patient for the first time, but observers said the country had a long history of coronavirus.
