Anxiety and concern of the international community about the novel coronavirus infection rapidly spreading worldwide are growing stronger with each passing day.

From the early stages of Covid-2019, the DPRK has taken positive measures against the inroads of the epidemic that seriously affects people.

In accordance with an urgent measure taken by the state, the Non-Permanent Central Public Health Guidance Committee of the DPRK declared that the hygienic and anti-epidemic system would be switched to the state emergency anti-epidemic one till the extermination of the novel coronavirus epidemics, and has dynamically conducted hygienic and anti-epidemic activities throughout the society.

Amid the increasing number of patients infected with the virus and deaths in the regions neighboring the DPRK and different countries of the world, some research results say that novel coronavirus has an incubation period of 24 days.

The spread of the epidemic comes to be a serious problem with the possibility of international disaster.

In this regard, the Non-Permanent Central Public Health Guidance Committee of the DPRK discussed the issue of prolonging the isolation period and strictly enforcing it in order to completely cut off the inroads of Covid-2019 and ensure the life of the people and safety of the state, and submitted it to the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly

The Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK examined, approved and decided the proposal of the Non-Permanent Central Public Health Guidance Committee according to the law on prevention of epidemics.

According to the decision urgently adopted at the SPA Presidium, the isolation period in the territory of the DPRK shall be prolonged to 30 days for the time being.

All the institutions and fields of the state and foreigners staying in the DPRK should obey it unconditionally.

The Non-Permanent Central Public Health Guidance Committee is taking due measures in accordance with the decision of the SPA Presidium of the DPRK.
