No coronavirus cases in North Korea

The WHO says there are no reported cases of coronavirus in North Korea.

2. Reported* cases.

I'm sure that statement is pedantically correct -- that DPRK has not reported any cases to the WHO.

4. The operative word there is, reported.

The WHO is correct, but the data they have is likely incorrect. NK doesn't openly share data.

However, there are rumors of COVID-19 having been introduced to NK, probably via illegal trade with China. It's not verifiable, though.

5. I sincerely hope the people of North Korea will be spared.

But I'm not optimistic about that. It will probably be worse there than anywhere.

6. As always for the people of NK, the elite will get the best treatment.

It's everyone outside of Pyongyang are the ones I fear for the most.

9. It maybe because their economy is not what one would call robust...

... not much international traffic coming and going on a daily basis. So the incidence of person to person infection rates might be significantly lower. International human traffic is way lower than other countries might experience.

The math and percentages are working very much in their favor.
