The Covid-19 coronavirus continues to spread across the world. It has infected more than 65,000 people and killed over 1,700. But there is little known about how it's affecting North Korea. The secretive state is close to the centre of the outbreak, with numerous cases reported in South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. So how is North Korea's state TV reporting on the coronavirus - and are there really no cases in the country?

News organisations around the world could learn something from the North Koreans, it seems as this comes across as a highly professional presentation !
