Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “North Korea: More than one million infected with COVID” – below is their description.
Less than a week after reporting its first official COVID-19 case, North Korea says more than a million people are ill with what it calls a “fever” – and at least 50 people have died.
Leader Kim Jong Un is blaming his own health officials for being “irresponsible” and has deployed the army.
Neighbouring South Korea has offered to step in and help.
