Along with Covid, an unidentified disease breaks out in North Korea
North Korea says it is dealing with an outbreak of an unidentified intestinal disease, alongside Covid which has spread en masse.
The country's leader, Kim Jong-un, has ordered the implementation of quarantine measures.
Medications have been sent to Haeju City to help patients suffering from 'acute enteric epidemic'.
Health experts suspect the disease may be typhoid or cholera.
North Korea declared a state of emergency in May after it said millions of people had fevers believed to be untested cases of Covid-19.
The biggest problem is that in Korea there is a lack of tests against Covid and so the real number of infected is unclear.
In the last few hours alone, over 26,000 people are thought to be infected with Covid.
It is not even known if the outbreak of typhoid or cholera is related to the spread of Covid. Korea has refused vaccination against the virus.
