N. Korea disinfects factory amid COVID outbreak

STORY: In the video provided by the North's official news agency KCNA, which Reuters cannot independently verify, workers in personal protective suits can be seen spraying disinfectant, checking employee's body temperature, and applying hand sanitizer.

A worker in charge of disinfection said disinfection was "key to the anti-epidemic project".

North Korea on Wednesday (June 15) reported 29,910 new people with fever symptoms, which brings the total number of cases to 4,532,240 people with similar symptoms since late April, KCNA said.

The country has been waging a battle against an unprecedented COVID-19 wave since declaring a state of emergency and imposing a nationwide lockdown last month, fueling concerns over a lack of vaccines and medical and food supplies.
