North Korea orders people’s committees nationwide to collect more herbs needed for traditional remedies

North Korea has ordered on January 3 to the Ministry of Public Health and Provincial city and county people’s committees to mobilize all available personnel to supply herbal ingredients needed for traditional herbal remedies called goryeoyak, as it became impossible to import drugs due to border closure. 

Some interpret this order that authorities are again emphasizing self-reliance in the medical sector. And many others complain from the quantity of the daily tasks that await them every morning.
