North Korea to hold parliament meetings, including review on anti-epidemic policy
North Korea is set to hold two key meetings in the coming weeks. A review of the country’s anti-epidemic policy is expected to be on the agenda for one of the meetings, even as Pyongyang claimed no new COVID-19 cases since July.
North Korean state media reported that the North Korean Supreme People’s Assembly, the rubber-stamp parliament, will be holding a meeting on September 7 to discuss the law on rural development and organizational matters.
Pyongyang has also moved to hold a national meeting this month to review its anti-epidemic policy “to confirm the new orientation.”
The meeting regarding the anti-epidemic policy comes as North Korea claimed last week that all of its patients who were suffering from fever have recovered, marking the end of the nation’s first surge of COVID-19 since its public admission of the virus back in May.
While Pyongyang has never confirmed how many people were infected with the coronavirus, around 4.77 million fever patients were completely recovered, and 74 died since late April.
KCNA reported that the decision to convene the parliament came amidst a plenary meeting of the SPA’s standing committee. During the weekend meeting, those in attendance adopted the law on medicines to set up a “strict system” to promote public health.
Other issues on the agenda included revising the aerospace development law to “further legalize the activities” in the field and adopting the law of “self-guard” to establish what is described as the “all-people self-guard system” to protect the people’s life and property, according to KCNA.
