North Korea has announced an “explosive” outbreak of COVID recording an estimated 350,000 cases and at least six deaths.
The first official case of COVID was reported earlier this week.
Health experts are concerned a large outbreak could prove disastrous for North Korea’s dilapidated health system.
A lack of vaccine distribution means it would likely be unable to handle a large wave of infections.
Chinese media outlets report every city in North Korea has been ordered into lockdown.
