Material measures have been taken in different parts of the DPRK to prevent the inroads of COVID-19.

North Phyongan Province is further tightening the system of blockade, check, observation and information against the epidemic along the border area, while producing lots of antiseptic solution every day for thorough disinfection.

Province-level units have recently produced hundreds of thousands of hygienic, anti-epidemic and medical goods and medicines and supplied them to residents.

Officials of units at all levels in Jagang Province have made tangible contribution to building up the material and technical foundation for hygienic and anti-epidemic work by preparing equipment for examination of water and vehicles.

Institutions at provincial and city levels in South Phyongan Province provided a large amount of fuel, electric-power generating motors, foodstuffs, bedclothes and non-staple foods, etc. to provincial, city and county anti-epidemic institutions and quarantine places on several occasions.

The hygienic and anti-epidemic centres and public health organs in South Hwanghae Province built a base for producing antiseptic solution by themselves to satisfy the needs and take measures for fully supplying medicines and medical goods like protective medical clothing, goggles and overshoes.

North Hwanghae, Kangwon and Ryanggang provinces also push ahead with the supply of materials as required by the ongoing all-out anti-epidemic campaign.
