The top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un sacked two senior officials for corruption and other acts and made new arrangements to battle COVID-19, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Saturday.

In a recent high-level meeting, Ri Man Gon and Pak Thae Dok were dismissed from the posts of vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, KCNA said.

The meeting also discussed COVID-19 prevention efforts, including launching a more thorough nationwide awareness campaign, KCNA said.

“In case the infectious disease spreading beyond control finds its way into our country, it will entail serious consequences,” Kim said, noting the reliable measures already taken by the party and government.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the DPRK has taken strict measures to prevent the infectious disease from spreading to the country. It has not reported any confirmed cases so far. Enditem
