The international community expresses stronger apprehensions about the novel coronavirus infection rapidly spreading across the world with each passing day.

From the early stages of COVID-19, 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 epidemic, and has dynamically conducted hygienic and anti-epidemic activities throughout society.

Amid a growing number of patients infected with the virus and deaths in the regions adjacent to the DPRK and several other countries across the world, some research has suggested that novel coronavirus has a latency period of 24 days.

The spread of the epidemic presents itself as 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 quarantine period and strictly enforcing it in order to completely cut off the inroads of COVID-19 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 DPRK SPA examined and approved before deciding the proposal according to the law on prevention of epidemics.

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

All the institutions and sectors of the State and foreigners staying in the DPRK should obey it unconditionally.

The non-permanent central public health guidance committee is taking relevant measures in accordance with the decision of the DPRK SPA Presidium.
