Always figured that NK was a good candidate for the zombie virus emergence.

But if I feel ok otherwise?

Covid doesn't just damage the immune system of the individual.  It damages the immune system of the entire community.  We're about to party like its 1665.

If those are the features, what are the downsides?

In World War Z (the book)  the entire population is marched into the country's network of bomb shelters and sealed in, so we never know for certain what happens to them

OK, this was actually interesting to read, because it solves a mystery.

About 9 years ago, I had about 5 lymph nodes suddenly balloon for no damned reason.  I figured they were just infected cysts, which happens time to time.

They didn't initially explode.  But over 9 years, they've gotten to the point they could be lanced, and drained...  I've still got one that is being a (literal) pain in the ass, but it's almost gone.

/and in the event you are wondering what a 9 year old cyst smells like when it's finally drained... DON'T IMAGINE IT
//Think chunky rotten oatmeal... that smells like death.

But let's just say the amount of food imports needed dropped dramatically......

The single most important thing a society can do to promote public health is to ensure that their drinking water is entirely separate from their waste water. What is happening here is the direct consequence of failure to do so.

That  has exactly zero to do with the problem, but thanks for playing.

Considering the base ingredient of earliest forms of meth amphetamine is regarded as almost sacred in North Korea its not surprising that tuberculosis hits a little bit differently there. Most of the rest of the world used that shiat to try and make medicine while they tried only to create super-soldiers.

Better that it's my armpits and not my genitals.

Again.

Blood and Pus sounds like a Nugent & Kid Rock collaboration.

Huh, I could have sworn the article had paragraph after paragraph explaining how they were getting parasites from waste water comingling.

Thats old school bubonic plague, subs.   Google up what buboes are.  Just not before lunch.

No sir, I don't believe I will Google Image Search that shiat

It was assumed to be a white zone, too, because there HAD to be infected shut in with them.

What is tragic is that we still have regions - plural - where this is still an issue, in the 2000s. People can hate on Kim, but it is heartbreaking to see people suffering, particularly when it is a fixable problem if the gov built a few fewer bombs.

And no one wanted to go see, because they didn't want to open the doors and find several hundred million hungry zombies.
They figured either they are zekes, and best let them stay, or they are still alive, but fark em, who are they going to bother down in the tunnels?

There are far worse places to leak blood and pus. In fact, if I *had* to leak blood and pus from somewhere, my armpits would be in the top three choices.

Interesting.  What would be the other two choices?

OMG, THAT'S SO INAPPROPRIATE!
Pay no attention to him, MD.

Soooo, hypothetically speaking what would be your other choices?

My Hangŭl/Chosŏn'gŭl is ...rusty, to say the least, so I couldn't make much sense of the article,

Is this about Korean Hemorrhagic Fever, AKA hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS)?  I first heard about it in an episode of MASH.
