Examining North Korea's COVID-19 Data: A Curious Case Study   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "It has been just over a month since North Korea announced its first official confirmed case of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and began reporting detailed data on the scope and status of the outbreak. Every day, the party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, provides its readers with data on the number of new and current cases nationwide (using 'fever' as a proxy for confirmed COVID cases, since testing is limited) as well as COVID related deaths. On state television, Ryu Yong Chol, an official with the state emergency epidemic prevention headquarters, appears each morning and evening to walk through provincial data and explain the latest on the epidemic."
