It's worth reminding that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called the spread of covid the biggest shock since the founding of the state. He sent military doctors to fight the infection. South Korea offered help to Pyongyang - vaccines against coronavirus. In addition, China offered to supply a large batch of Sinovac Biotech vaccine. Note that a year ago, the North Korean authorities refused international assistance with vaccination.
