Looks like the North Korean government aren’t going to let the Coronavirus problem interfere with everyday life.

I'm guessing they need help and this is there way to barter for food and supplys

North Korea proclaimed that they had "no COVID19 cases". Yea, right.

North Korean will probably die by thousands, Kim could care less

I agree like when a baby cries because they want something.

N Korea fires two projectiles off east coast into sea

North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles into its eastern sea

This South Korean journalist is trying so hard not to use the offical name 'Sea of Japan'. Will he not get published if he does?

This South Korean journalist needs to understand that in English - the language he is using - it is known as the Sea of Japan. Using any other name means nothing to those reading it other than a direct attempt to undermine the name used in English. If he wishes to call it the Korean name he can do so without opposition in Korean language.

Kim's whining so he could leverage aid from the outside world.

Someone needs to tell North Korea that the world is too busy to pay attention to their temper tantrums right now...

@Hillclimber

The journalist did not use any other name for the Sea of Japan, in fact he did not name the sea at all, he just said 'Korea's eastern sea', no caps so no name, just a description of where they were fired.

China needs to make it clear. If NK harms any other state in the region, then China won't be able to sell stuff to those people. China sells hundreds of $trillions to the USA, so harming the US won't be good either.

Why does China stand by NK? Ideology? UN votes? Why?

I think it's due time for Trump to send another love letter. That worked before didn't it?

Kim's intel are still trying to decipher the last one, it was smothered in ketchup and klingon.

America's kryptonite, worth keeping in the back pocket.

 North Korea has shut down nearly all cross-border traffic, banned tourists, intensified screening at entry points and mobilized tens of thousands of health workers to monitor residents and isolate those with symptoms.

Gotta admit they are doing the right thing. Something no other country is willing to do for fear of discrimination, offending or infringement of "rights."

North Korea has yet to confirm any COVID-19 cases, although state media have hinted that an uncertain number of people have been quarantined after exhibiting symptoms.

They are analyzing those quarantined people to see how they can use the virus as germ warfare. North Korea have been watching the situation closely, noting how China was able to disrupt the world economy and create pandemonium by unleashing and spreading the virus.

He (Kim) also said the North would soon reveal a new "strategic weapon" 

There you go. "New strategic weapon" = biological/chemical/germ warfare. All attention is on nuclear proliferation and banning nuclear weapons. Nobody pays attention to germ warfare and biological weapons. NK found the loophole.

Someone needs to tell North Korea that the world is too busy to pay attention to their temper tantrums right now...

While the world is too busy distracted by the virus (that China unleashed), nobody notices North Korea is quietly developing a new "strategic (biological) weapon".

China needs to make it clear. If NK harms any other state in the region, then China won't be able to sell stuff to those people

Are you kidding? China is using North Korea as a proxy, propping them up, encouraging them so that they CAN threaten the region, i.e., missile tests and "new strategic weapons". Meanwhile Chairman Xi sits back and gleefuly watches NK do their bidding and the world panics and economy tanks.

We don’t care NK! Too many other more important things going on in the world to bother with Lil’Kim’s need for attention.
