North Korea COVID crisis set to worsen - DW News

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un blasted health officials over the country's coronavirus response and ordered the army to help distribute medicine, state media said on Monday. Kim "strongly criticized" officials for what he called a botched response to epidemic prevention, mainly a failure to keep pharmacies open round the clock to distribute medicine.

Kim said medicine supplies were not being distributed to pharmacies in time because of "irresponsible work attitude'' and lack of organization, state media reported. He told the military commission to act "on immediately stabilizing the supply of medicines in Pyongyang City by involving the powerful forces of the military medical field of the People's Army," state media said.
