North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has given orders in his country to massively exterminate pigeons and cats, which he accuses of spreading the coronavirus through the country through the border with China.
According to the Mirror, which cites the Daily NK, there are testimonies from authorities in towns and cities along the border between China and North Korea shooting birds and looking for cats and their owners, who on many occasions are refusing to hand them over. .
In Hyesan, which is close to the border, a family was recently placed in an isolation center for 20 days for raising a cat, reports the Daily NK.
It is not the only recent measure by the dictator in this regard, because earlier this month, it was revealed that the North Korean dictator would have banned the use of Chinese medicine in major hospitals across the country after the death of an official. .
North Korea claims to have suffered no confirmed cases of Covid-19 during the pandemic, but is promoting domestically manufactured drugs as foreign treatments are not available due to sanctions imposed by the United Nations.
International analysts believe that Kim Jong-un is increasingly haunted and anxious about his fears of being toppled. This is why he has lately increased the controversial bans on him. Earlier this month, for example, he announced that he had banned clothing, haircuts and music that he does not like.
