Mengutip Reuters, Rabu, (18/5/2022), Korut yang terisolasi ini tengah berjuang menghadapi gelombang wabah Corona setelah untuk pertama kalinya mengonfirmasi keberadaan kasus Corona di wilayahnya pekan lalu. Wabah Corona di Korut memicu kekhawatiran besar karena kurangnya pasokan vaksin Corona dan tidak memadainya infrastruktur medis di negara tersebut.
