North Korea told WHO - 'Not a single case of corona in the country', but this step raises questions on the claim

North Korea told the World Health Organization (WHO) that as of June 10, more than 30,000 people have been tested for coronavirus. But not a single case of infection has been reported in the country so far. The WHO said in a surveillance report on Tuesday that 733 people were tested from June 4 to June 10, according to North Korea's data, of whom 149 were infected with influenza-like illnesses or severe respiratory infections. were victims.

Experts are skeptical of North Korea's claim that it does not have a single case of infection, while its health infrastructure is very poor. It shares its borders with China, considered its biggest ally and its economic lifeline. North Korea has banned tourists, describing its anti-virus efforts as a matter of national survival. Diplomats have been sent out and cross-border traffic and trade have been completely banned.

Will keep Corona restrictions in force for a long time: Kim Jong Un

The self-imposed lockdown has put more pressure on the country's economy. North Korea's economy is already in crisis due to decades of mismanagement and US-led sanctions imposed on it due to the country's nuclear weapons program. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un asked officials during a political conference last week to be prepared to keep Kovid-19 restrictions in place for a long time. This indicates that the country is not yet ready to open its borders.

Inflation reached the sky in North Korea

On the other hand, the economic situation of North Korea is deteriorating day by day. Due to global restrictions, hurricanes and corona virus, a severe food crisis has arisen in this country. The situation has become so bad that the prices of everyday necessities are also skyrocketing. According to the information, the price of potato has increased three times here. According to the local people, to buy a small packet of tea leaves here, $ 70 (Rs 5191) and $ 100 (Rs 7414) have to be spent for a packet of coffee. Apart from this, people have to pay up to $ 45 i.e. 3300 rupees for a dozen bananas.

Shopping in supermarket became the cause of death! Exit gate closed after massive fire, 396 people were burnt to death

Supermarkets exist for shopping in countries around the world, where people reach to buy their everyday things. These supermarkets are equipped with all kinds of facilities to make them safe for the people. But what if someone goes to the supermarket for shopping, but does not come back alive. Actually, one such incident came to light in Paraguay on this day, when a huge fire broke out in a supermarket located in Asunción, the capital of the country. 396 people died in this incident.

On August 1, 2004, a massive fire broke out at the Ycuá Bolaños supermarket in Asuncion. The thing to note here is that in case of fire, the exit gate is usually opened, so that people can get out safely. But after the fire in this supermarket, the exit gate itself was closed. The reason behind this was to prevent people from stealing goods. On the other hand, while supermarkets around the world are safe, this building lacked adequate fire protection systems. The president of the supermarket company as well as various employees were later sentenced to prison for their actions during the fire.

How did the fire in the supermarket?

On August 1, 2004, there were two explosions on the first floor, after which a fire broke out. This fire kept burning for seven hours, after hard work, the fire department brought the fire under control. After the incident, it was found that 396 people have died due to burns. In addition, more than 500 people have been injured. The cause of the fire was told that there was a bad barbecue chimney, which leaked hot flammable gases into the roof. Because of this the fire started.

More attention was given to supermarket goods than life

Fire survivors and volunteer firefighters alleged that during the time the fire broke out, the doors inside the complex were locked at the instructions of supermarket owners Juan Pio Paiva and his son Victor Daniel. Because of this people got trapped inside the blazing complex. This was done so that people could not run away with the goods without paying. However, the management of the supermarket vehemently denied these allegations. At the same time, Paiva, his son and the security guard surrendered before the police and charges were framed against them.
