North Korean man shot dead for violating corona virus quarantine rules

A North Korean Official has reportedly been killed after he broke the terms of his corona virus quarantine.

The government official had been put in medical quarantine after returning to North Korea from The Republic of China.

The man, who had been placed in isolation after traveling to China, had gone to a public bath when he was caught and shot soon after he was arrested.

According to Dong-a IIbo, the man was shot dead because by going out in public, he was ‘violating the quarantine rules’ and was risking the spread of the disease.

This comes after North Korea had claimed not to have any cases of the virus within its borders, although it still has not been independently verified.

The reports that claimed there were no cases of the virus in Korean borders were received with doubts by those outside North Korea.

North Korea shares a border with China, which is the epicenter of the corona virus is one of the reasons the claims are received with disbelieve.

“The North Korean government has told FAO that there are no cases of the novel corona virus , but we are skeptical of such claims.” Said Bir Mandal of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Speaking to Fox News, director of Korean studies at the Center for National Interest, Harry Kazianis, said there is no way North Korea is not being impacted by the virus.

Some media sources from the country have admitted that some of its citizens have been quarantined.

Another official who was working at the country’s National Security Agent was relegated to working on a farm after it was discovered he hid a recent trip to China.

Following the possibility of the spread of the dreaded virus in North Korea, the country authorities have taken some preventive measures.

The country’s border to China, which is 880 miles, has been closed with no foreign tourists allowed access to the country through the China border.

The North Korean Central News Agency reported that the headquarters gave a directive that everyone entering the capital city of Pyongyang, either by road or was traveling back from outside the country, be tested of the virus.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has promised to “rule by military law” against everyone who violates the rules set for quarantine.

A news media in the area, JoongAng IIbo earlier had contradicting reports that there have been no confirmed cases of the disease in the country.
