On Thursday, June 16, North Korea, through its official news agency KCNA, announced the spread of a “severe inflammatory bowel disease” in the southern Hwange region.
After Govt-19 and monkey flu, a new health threat? The official North Korean news agency, on Thursday, June 16, announced on television the spread of a new “acute inflammatory bowel disease” in the southwestern part of the country.
Especially in southern Hwanghae province. Kim Jong-un For his part, he urged North Korean public health officials to “control the explosion as soon as possible.” No further details were provided by the newspaper about the symptoms of the disease or the mode of transmission.
However, KCNA announced that the drug, donated by the family of the North Korean dictator, would be distributed to at least 1,600 people “for more than 800 families affected by this serious epidemic that has erupted in parts of southern Hwanghe province.” May be affected by this disease.
Recognizing the seriousness of the situation, the North Korean leader’s sister was quoted in a group of senior officials who personally dispensed drugs to fight the epidemic.

The announcement of the disease included a potential food disaster, with South Hwangge Province one of North Korea’s main agricultural areas. South Korea has offered to help Pyongyang, but has not yet responded.
The non-existent health system is over-represented by Govt-19
North Korea announced in May They are the first case of Govt-19 And triggered a “maximum state of emergency”. Officials, who call the disease “the flu,” said the latter had reached 4.5 million people. Keep in mind that none of the 25 million citizens in its population have been vaccinated.

Its health system is in a state of disrepair, equipment is in disrepair, intensive care units: from another age, when they are. Whether it comes from South Korea, Russia or China, that country cannot fully test its population and in turn rejects all vaccination programs.
