The new cases, which occurred between Friday evening and 6 pm Saturday, raised the total number of deaths to 42 and that of those who have shown fever symptoms since late April to over 820,620, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Among them, more than 496,030 have been cured and at least 324,550 are being treated, it added. State media KCNA said a total of 42 people had died, with 820,620 cases and at least 324,550 under medical treatment. It cited data compiled by the “state emergency epidemic prevention headquarters.” The North’s state news agency have used the expression “fevered persons,“ instead of Covid-19 patients or confirmed cases, which observers here view as attributable to a lack of coronavirus testing kits and other equipment to confirm infection. KCNA reported that “all provinces, cities and counties of the country have been totally locked down and working units, production units and residential units closed from each other. With “swift state emergency measures” taken to curb the spread of the virus, the KCNA said in its English-language report, many of the dead were “careless in taking drugs due to the lack of knowledge and understanding of stealth Omicron variant virus infection disease and its correct treatment method. Despite the lockdowns, Kim and other senior officials on Saturday attended funeral services for Yang Hyong Sop, a former de facto head of state during the rule of Kim's father, Kim Jong Il, KCNA reported.

” It added, all provinces, cities and counties of the country have been locked down and working, production and residential units closed since the morning of May 12 and strict and intensive examination of all people is being conducted. North Korea confirmed Thursday that the highly contagious Omicron variant had been detected in the capital Pyongyang, with Kim ordering nationwide lockdowns. The KCNA also said the nation's senior officials have been donating their private reserve medicines in the fight against the epidemic. Last Thursday, the North made public an outbreak of the stealth omicron variant on its soil after more than two years of claiming that it was free of Covid-19. “The spread of malignant disease comes to be a great upheaval in our country since the founding of the DPRK,” Kim said yesterday, referring to North Korea by its official name.- Bernama .
