A defector from the DPRK has antibodies to the infection in his blood. This was stated by the authorities of South Korea. Most likely, this is the result of a special vaccination.

In response to the development and testing of nuclear weapons of the DPRK. Since the beginning of 2018, oil supplies have declined fourfold.
