North Korea's response to coronavirus has been a 'shining success', says Kim Jong-un
Kim Jong-un has said that North Korea has stopped the coronavirus making inroads in his country and his response to the pandemic has been a "shining success". According to state news agency KCNA, Mr Kim told a meeting of the politburo of the ruling Workers Party that North Korea had "thoroughly prevented the inroad of the malignant virus and maintained a stable anti-epidemic situation despite the worldwide health crisis, which is a shining success achieved." He warned against complacency or relaxation in the anti-epidemic effort and urged North Koreans to maintain "maximum alert", KCNA said in a statement. The politburo meeting on Thursday comes as many hard-hit countries are easing lockdowns, even as the world moves quickly past the grim milestones of 10 million confirmed infections and 500,000 deaths. North Korea has reopened schools but kept a ban on public gatherings and made it mandatory for people to wear masks in public places as part of its response to the coronavirus threat, a World Health Organisation (WHO) official said on Wednesday.

Fox News Host Wonders When Masks Got ‘Political.' He Should Watch His Own Network.
Now that President Donald Trump has finally said that he's "all for masks" amid a massive surge in coronavirus cases, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy on Thursday wondered why wearing a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19 ever became politicized. "For some reason, over the last couple of weeks, a month, masks have become political," the Fox host remarked during an interview. If he wants to identify that mysterious "some reason," he needn't look any further than his own colleagues.Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. months ago, Fox News hosts and guests have repeatedly criticized face coverings—either by openly mocking them or by claiming mandated mask-wearing is an infringement on personal freedom, particularly by Democratic officials eager to control the population.During an April 24 broadcast of Hannity, for instance, guest host Mike Huckabee and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy—both former Republican elected officials—groused about a then-new Houston mandate that would fine residents up to $1,000 if they didn't wear a mask in public, calling it an example of local government "trampling the constitutional rights of American citizens.""Is this a threat to the long-term life and liberty of the United States and its people?" Huckabee wondered aloud about state and local coronavirus restrictions, prompting Gowdy to make an over-the-top observation about such fines.Trump's Fox News Cabinet Tells Him the Coronavirus Crisis Is Over"So, if I'm going to i
