Efforts to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions stopped after these two meetings failed to reach a nuclear disarmament agreement, but the two leaders continued to exchange messages.
North Korea has taken some of the most stringent measures of any country against the virus, and it has done so sooner than most other countries.
It closed its borders in late January and stopped business with neighboring China, which accounts for nine-tenths of its foreign trade. The New York Times mentioned.
It stressed the smugglers and quarantined all diplomats in Pyongyang for a month.
In July, the country announced what was suspected to be the first case, and it was caused by a 24-year-old fugitive who reportedly returned home with a possible infection with the virus from South Korea.

The number of cases in North Korea is unknown, but it is believed to be low, given its isolation.
In September, the Supreme Commander of the US Forces in South Korea, General Robert Abrams, said that the closed country had since issued “shoot to kill” orders to prevent the Corona virus from entering the country from China.
Coronavirus-related security zones were first reported by the Seoul-based news site Daily NK with sources in North Korea.
The port said that the new rules stipulate that anyone “violating the rules or disrupting public order near the border will be shot without prior notice.”
She added that the rules apply to all regions of the country.
