Kim Jong Un only trying to avoid COVID-19, says South Korean minister

A South Korean minister said on Tuesday that Kim Jong Un may have missed a key holiday on April 15 because of concerns over the coronavirus, not because he is ill. The remarks come amid a heightened level of speculation over the North Korean leader’s health. South Korea emphasized they have detected no unusual movements in North Korea and have cautioned against reports that Kim may be ill.

He's either Hiding from Coronavirus that could well be ravaging Pyongyang (they're building a big new hospital in the heart of the city, Wuhan-style, draw your own conclusions about how bad it is there), and he's happy for the heart-surgery-gone-wrong story to circulate rather than tell the World he's hiding from the virus, or he's a veg/the surgery really didn't go terribly well (would explain why the Chinese sent a Medical Team to him), or he's full of embalming fluid ready to go on show at later date. Place your bets....now!
