North Korean despot Kim Jong Un executed two people, locked up the country’s capital and banned sea fishing in a frantic attempt to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, South Korea’s spy agency told lawmakers on Friday.
The tyrant has struggled with “excessive anger” and “irrational measures” in recent weeks as a result of the epidemic, said one official, Ha Tae-keung, who was informed by the National Intelligence Service.
Kim allegedly murdered a major money changer in Pyongyang last month and a key official was executed in August for violating import regulations, he said. None of the victims could be identified.
The North Korean dictator has also locked the city of Pyongyang and North Jagang Province to prevent the spread of COVID-19 – and a South Korean pharmaceutical company has been hacked to learn the secrets of the vaccine it has developed, officials said.
Kim made a strange decision to ban fishing and salt production at sea to prevent the seawater from being infected with the deadly virus, NIS told lawmakers.
Nevertheless, the North Korean government has insisted that the country has not had a single case of coronavirus – a claim disputed by health experts.
The COVID-19 epidemic in mysterious nations could have a devastating effect on your health system without adequate medical care.
In addition to coronavirus concerns, Kim fears that elected president Joe Biden will have a harder time landing in the Hermit Kingdom than President Trump, the spy agency said.
The North Korean government has been silent for weeks about Biden’s victory over Trump, with whom Kim held three summits over his nuclear arsenal.
However, legislator Kim Byung-kee said North Korea fears that its friendly relations with Trump will become useless and believes it should start with the upcoming Biden administration.
Kim ordered overseas diplomatic missions not to provoke the United States, warning their envoys of the consequences if their remarks or actions about the United States were a problem with their relations with Washington.
