North Korean state-run media is reporting that Kim Jong Un made an appearance at a May Day celebration, which would be his first public appearance in about three weeks.
"Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un Cuts Tape For Completion Of Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory," the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
KCNA says there was a "completion ceremony of the factory" on Friday, "the international holiday of the working people of the whole world."
No pictures of the ceremony have yet emerged. CNN cannot independently confirm KCNA's reporting.
Questions were raised about Kim's well-being after he missed the celebration of his grandfather's birthday on April 15. He had been seen four days before that at a politburo meeting, according to North Korean state media, KCNA.
North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said Sunday that Kim sent thanks to workers who helped in remodeling the city of Samjiyon.
CNN cannot independently confirm the authenticity of Sunday's report and whether the note of thanks came directly from the leader.
The same newspaper said Friday that Kim had "sent thanks" to exemplary party members for their work promoting party policy. The article did not give details for when or how his sentiments were expressed.
It is not the first time North Korean media has reported on Kim's activities since news of his potential health issues emerged.

If you read it in the Pyongyang Times, you know it’s gotta be true.
He appeared at a fertilizer plant because hes fertilizer.
A Fertilizer Factory that makes no Fertilizer because they use Human waste on their on their fields and everyone has to provide
LOL It’s good enough for me i don’t need more proof!! :)
With an honest, established, credible, trustworthy source like that.
More reliable than the NYT.
The Chinese News Network (CNN) will probably try to pull some Weekend at Bernie’s stunt.
In other news, Francisco Franco is still dead.
Mao had a body double who turned up at public appearances during Mao’s latter days. Rocket Man no doubt does the same.
This just in...Kim Jong Un still dead.
I’m pretty sure I saw a picture of Kim and Fidel just
the other day.
I no dead, you go away.
Another Nessie sighting. Much rarer than Elvis sightings for sure.
A la El Cid.
Perhaps he is simply “pining for the fjords”?
If you read it in the Pyongyang Times, you know its gotta be true.
No its actually worse. Its CNN reporting the Pyongyang Times, akin to A Shemp telling Curly to pass on to the Moe’s of the world.
If it were so, there would be pics and videos all over the place.
I saw him and Elvis at a gas station eating donuts.
