North Korea has mysteriously locked down a major border city, a move reportedly connected to either the coronavirus or a planned event for missing-again despot Kim Jong Un.
The Hermit Kingdom one of the few nations on Earth claiming to be coronavirus-free barred entry earlier this month to Rason, a city of 20,000 that is a major hub for trade with Russia and China, sources told Radio Free Asia Tuesday.
The notoriously secretive nation has refused to tell its citizens why the city was suddenly locked down, RFA said.
Many fear that it could be a sign of a coronavirus outbreak, with bordering China also sealing off Jilin city and Shulan close to their shared border after a recent spike in cases.

That’s where I got it, but I think this a new city as the other post only mentions the cities of Jilin and Shuhan.
Whoops, I take that back. I read too fast.
Huh - learn something new every day - I thought North Korea was completely bordered by China or the water
Russia had a seaport at the top of the Yellow Sea until the Japanese took it away from them in 1904.
Given that the only morbidly obese people in NK are the dictator and his body doubles, I wonder how much damage the virus is doing there. What does it do to the chronically malnourished?
Isn’t everything they do “mysterious?” ;)
It's also bordered by South Korea. Now you've learned two things today!
Well duh - South Korea is just part of Kim Jongs domain anyway!
I'm sure that FATSO Kim Jong-un uses food as a weapon to keep the North Koreans obedient.
China AND North Korea are still having major problems with the Wuhanic Plague. The truth will eventually come out. People are going to be shocked at the number of cases AND deaths that will have occurred in both countries.
I hope the Norks had a good “Reason” to lock-down “Rason”. Could it be that the people were “Raising” their voices in protest of this Cuomo/Inslee isolation plan their fearless leader was going to impose on them.
Nothing worse for the communist dictatorship than to have “Anti-Red Rasons Raising their Voices in Protest and carrying out “Raids” on food supply sites and Chinese carry-out shops”.
