    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended a Workers' Party politburo meeting on Thursday that focused on the coronavirus epidemic.

    The official [North] Korean Central News Agency reported that Kim ordered officials to thoroughly review quarantine measures and stressed "the need to maintain maximum alert." The announcement comes even though the North officially admits no cases of COVID-19.

    Meanwhile, there was no mention of inter-Korean matters at the meeting, despite North Korea's recent histrionics that culminated in the blowup of the inter-Korean liaison office in Kaesong.
