ABSTRACT

Pandemic in North Korea: Lessons from the 1990s Famine   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "North Korea's response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic is oddly reminiscent of the catastrophic famine that overtook the country in the 1990s. Then as now, the onset and severity of the famine caught the North Korean leadership unawares, and their first response was to deny that a problem existed. A look back at how the response played out after the initial denial offers some clues as to how the current regime may respond to the COVID-19 crisis today."
