North Korea lifts lockdown in the city of Kaesong after suspected coronavirus case

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said the country has to be vigilant and decline any offer of foreign aid to battle flooding to keep coronavirus at bay.

“The worsening global situation on the malignant virus requires us not to allow any outside aid for the flood damage but shut the border tighter and carry out strict anti-epidemic work,” Kim said in comments carried by the KCNA.

Kim Jong-un has lifted a three-week lockdown in the city of Kaesong after a suspected case of the novel coronavirus there, state media reported.
