Almost 200 North Korean soldiers have reportedly died from coronavirus, thousands more in quarantine [View all]

Hundreds of North Korean soldiers have reportedly died from the coronavirus and thousands of others are being quarantined.

But the secretive nation's leaders are sticking to the official narrative that the global epidemic has not reached them.

According to Daily NK, a South Korean news organization, the COVID-19 virus killed 180 North Korean soldiers in January and February and has sent another 3,700 into quarantine. And according to South Korea's government-backed Yonhap News Agency, almost 10,000 people have been quarantined over coronavirus fears, but nearly 4,000 have been released since they didn't present symptoms.

But the North Korean government line hasn't changed. The cloistered nation has remained stubbornly resistant to providing transparent information about the reported outbreak in the country.

No wonder Trump loves Kim Jong Un so much.
