Authorities in the North Korean capital Pyongyang have ordered a five-day lockdown due to rising cases of an unspecified respiratory illness, Seoul-based NK News reported on Wednesday, citing a government notice.

The notice did not mention Covid-19, but said that residents in the city are required to stay in their homes through the end of Sunday and must submit to temperature checks multiple times each day, according to NK News, which monitors North Korea.

On Tuesday, the website reported that Pyongyang residents appeared to be stocking up on goods in anticipation of stricter measures. It is unclear if other areas of the country have imposed new lockdowns.

Well people from North Korea can't leave the country so that's good isn't it?

It’s probably the rsv that was pretty bad last few months around the world.

Don’t they torture and murder their citizens regularly? Why would they be worried about covid or any other illness?

Probably because, unlike starvation or cruelty, the disease could eventually make its way back to the ones in power, or otherwise inconvenience their lives by killing off the servants. N.Korea is perpetually two inches away from crumbling as it is

The “Royal Family” is probably multiple vaccinated with best-class foreign doctors on speed dial. Why do they even bother? Oh wait they need people to rule over :toofunny2:

Don't people in North Korea need special permission to even leave the vicinity of the town they reside in?
