North Korea cancels marathon over coronavirus

North Korea has cancelled the Pyongyang Marathon because of the coronavirus outbreak. The annual marathon is held in April as part of the anniversary commemorations for founder Kim Il Sung’s birth in 1912. Almost 1,000 Westerners took part last year paying entry fees of up to $150.

Kim - I can assure the world that there are no cases of any disease in NK. As a matter of fact no one ever dies in NK.
