North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was infected with Covid while fighting to contain the country’s first acknowledged outbreak of the disease, according to state media on Tuesday, confirming earlier reports from Kim’s family as Pyongyang doubles down on claims it has defeated the virus and continues to baselessly push the idea South Korea was responsible for the outbreak.

Does anyone ever believe anything coming out of N. Korea? If they do they are idiots.

Toxic Haste says:

Both of our presidents had covid. Not sure what our intelligence community hopes to gain from relaying this information. It's not like anyone in North Korea will see or read about it, unless Kim so chooses. And North Korea had already openly admitted to it's own populace and the world at large, that Covid had spread throughout the country. So it's open knowledge that people were getting sick, they simply said they would do their upmost to contain it and minimalize its affect on the citizenry. As every nation did.
