North Korea has strengthened its national emergency disease preventive measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the regime's state-run newspapers, the Rodong Sinmun, reported Monday that the North still has the border closed and their water supply is being closely monitored.
Goods that come in through ports and train stations must pass an inspection and meet disease prevention requirements in order to be let in.
It adds the North is educating its people about COVID-19 so they can report themselves to hospitals if they experience symptoms.
The report added that medical facilities will conduct checkups on the public and on students over the summer vacation as part of its COVID-19 prevention measures.
