Nuke?  Is it a nuke?

So the outbreak in China is spilling over into North Korea? I hope China's other neighbors, excluding Russia, fare better than that.

Can you get Covid from eating your neighbors?

Can't remember the movie where a character lies about getting Kuru and the doctor comments you can only get it from eating your dead relatives.

Avoid the kidneys, liver, stomach, spleen, appendix, gall bladder, lungs, testicles...
Know what? Just avoid the organs. Meat should be fine if cooked to 145°F internal temperature. Cheeks are exceptionally tasty...

Everyone will get their own 6 foot demilitarized zone.

Well they will have more food to share soon

Unfortunately the elite are probably already vaxxed. Hopefully with the Chinese version.
It would be nice if it led to a democratic revolution in NK and China.

Unfortunately it's just as likely to lead to billions dead in civil wars.

Anyone that tests positive for NOT Covid-19 will be executed by minigun.

Well we know it isn't COVID. They already didn't have that.

Try not to be downwind from that.

They'll hide in their underground hideout just like in World War Z.

I feel for them.  North Korean healthcare consists of buying Chinese antibiotics on the black market.  Those won't be available right now.  CFR will be very high.

I'm sure it's come up in House at some point. Everything else has.

So it's 2019 all over again.

Farking great.

Haven't read that one in a while, only things I remember are the Battle of Yonkers and the shark mail divers fighting zeds underwater.

They're so far behind the rest of the world I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually the 1918 flu that has finally reached them.

it's mentioned in Peter Weir's The Plumber...

Aren't they always on full lockdown? What is this, Double Secret Lockdown?

It's a good thing the North Korean population is strong, well nourished, and vaccinated.

"Yes, yes, the vaccine is almost ready to distribute! I want first dibs!!"

We'll find out it was actually Covid in the most North Korean way possible... "We all had Covid in January" will be an image made by people holding up colored squares at the next Arirang festival.

I thought they pulled all the teeth and fingernails from their population to discourage the spread and it was surprisingly effective?

TFA says residents are "stocking up". WTF are they stocking up on? Bags of dirt and weeds?

If the photo in steklo's post is to be believed, there's plenty of product being produced at Pyongyang People's Protein Slurry Extrusion Concern and Hospice No. 3

Not if you sterilise them. You can do that by eating their genitals first.

This winter, it could be COVID (any of several strains), flu (ditto), RSV, some sort of Adenovirus... all of 'em have been going around... although my adorable little second-grade plague-rat hasn't mentioned any classmates taking a trip to Pyongyang to share their germs.

But it's now the Democratic People's Republican Coronavirus.

Hmmm, is it Gallagher, GWAR, or the "Behind the Green Door" live show in the Tenderloin back in the day?
