Amid an intensive nationwide anti-epidemic campaign to reverse the trend of spread of COVID-19 in the shortest possible period, the medical sector of the Korean People’s Army dispatched powerful forces to all the pharmacies in Pyongyang on the special order of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea to start the supply of medicines under a 24-hour service system.

Given a high incidence of patients with fever in the capital city, officials of the Pyongyang municipal Party committee are taking the lead in visiting hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, food supply stores and cereal shops to take timely steps for disease screening and medical check-up, drug supply and material supply for living.

The central emergency anti-epidemic sector is endeavouring to find out all patients with fever, bring examination of those with abnormal symptoms in step with the discovery and fundamentally prevent the spread of the epidemic so as to obstruct reinfection.

Information activities are conducted dynamically through the mass media to inform people of common knowledge about stealth o mutant, scientific treatment methods and regulations on infectious disease control.

The public health sector has set up databases based on the good grasp of clinical experience, remedies, good and side effects of drugs, period of recovery, treatment methods and the like, and is working out correct tactics for treatment. It is also drawing up and releasing standard guidelines specifying the choice and use of drugs and plans for nursing according to the conditions of patients.
