Kim Jong Un Warns of ‘Great Crisis’ After North Korea Quarantine Breach

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Kim Jong Un Warns of ‘Great Crisis’ After North Korea Quarantine Breach” – below is their description.

Kim Jong Un’s warning that North Korea faced a “great crisis” over a quarantine breach is raising more questions about what’s going wrong inside his secretive regime.

While the official Korean Central News Agency gave no further details on Wednesday, North Korea has recently been bracing its people for a tough road ahead. Earlier this month Kim told his ruling party the food situation was “growing tense,” and his own dramatic weight loss had citizens worried he looked “emaciated.”

Any Covid-19 outbreak in North Korea, if widespread, could potentially be devastating given the country has an antiquated health care system and likely no vaccines.
