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

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...

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.

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.

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

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?

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.
