Waterborne diseases on the rise…

Recently, Rodong Sinmun reported the spread of waterborne illnesses in South Hwanghae Province. However, locals have reported that several places including South Pyongan Province are suffering as well. 

Typhoid, dysentery, cholera, and other intestinal infections are significantly spreading among people due to contaminated water and food. Besides, medication is unavailable due to the border closure and the North Korean authorities have taken no measures to deal with the situation.
