Calls Covid will be over, North Korea holds an event attended by thousands of veterans without masks |  merdeka.com

Merdeka.com – North Korea is holding a major public event without wearing a mask for the first time since declaring a state of emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic in May. The event honors veterans of the 1950-1953 Korean War. A few days ago, North Korea declared that the Covid-19 pandemic would be over.

Photos released by state media today showed thousands of attendees without masks, including Workers’ Party officials and elderly veterans.

Veterans’ Day is celebrated in Pyongyang to commemorate the July 27 ceasefire in the Korean War which left the two countries, North and South Korea still in a state of war.

North Korea earlier this month said it was entering the final stages of the Covid-19 crisis at a time when other Asian countries were still struggling with a new wave of the Omicron subvariant.

State media KCNA today reported 18 new fever cases on Monday, the third straight day the number of cases has fallen below 100 after its peak in May.

KCNA said 99.99 percent of the 4.7 million fever patients since the end of April have now recovered.

North Korea has never reported how many citizens have tested positive for Covid-19, apparently due to a lack of test kits. The World Health Organization (WHO) last month said the Covid-19 situation in North Korea could get worse. [pan]
