With the spread of Corona 19 in North Korea and the high heat wave, the party's official newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, meticulously mentioned the precautions to be taken when wearing a mask for North Koreans.

The Rodong Sinmun recently gave advice to North Koreans on how to prevent skin irritation from wearing a mask in an article titled 'How to wear a mask when the hot weather continues.'

The Rodong Sinmun said, "If you wear a mask for a long time, you can reduce friction between the mask and the skin by applying cream to the nose, lower eyes, and auricles," the North Korean residents said. explained to

"People who sweat a lot sometimes put a layer of sanitary paper (toilet paper) inside the medical mask, but doing so affects the adhesion of the medical mask, reducing its effectiveness."

The newspaper also warned North Koreans not to exceed '8 hours', saying, "The use of disposable medical masks and medical surgical masks is limited."

North Korea is showing hot and humid weather today (2nd) with the highest temperature in most areas exceeding 30 degrees and atmospheric humidity of 70% or more.

Although North Korea externally advertises that it is stably controlling the spread of COVID-19 in the shortest period of time, it seems to be concerned about the possibility that the situation may worsen as the overall quarantine compliance, such as wearing a mask in hot weather, becomes sluggish.
