North Korea is known for carrying bizarre things. From confiscating dogs that are pets and selling them to restaurants or sending out random warnings to their neighboring countries, the list just goes on and 1 more thing has been added on that list.
A new report that was made public suggests that authorities in North Korea have issued a shoot to kill order in the entire country to prevent a coronavirus outbreak, which has caused chaos in countries all over the world.
Shoot to kill orders were given to authorities at the North Korea border with China.
The claims were made public by the commander of the US forces in the South.
Robert Abrams, the commander of the US Forces Korea said the claims during an online conference that was organized by Washington’s Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
Talking about the orders, he said:
They’ve got North Korean SOF (Special Operations Forces) out there. … Strike forces, they’ve got shoot-to-kill orders in place.
Commander Abrams said that the regime right now along with the military of the country is focused on recovering and eliminate the risk of a coronavirus outbreak in their country.
North Korea has reported no cases of the coronavirus and the country wants to keep it in that way because they do not have a health system that can cope up with a major outbreak.
North Korea closed its borders with China since the beginning of this year as a precautionary measure to prevent a coronavirus pandemic.
