North Korea has ordered a strict national lockdown after confirming its first official Covid infections.

State media have reported an Omicron outbreak in the capital, Pyongyang, but did not state the number of cases.

North Korea has rejected any kind of vaccine programme, even when offered a supply by other countries.

Instead, it controlled Covid by sealing its borders - and had never recorded a case, despite experts believing the virus has long been present.

North Korea announces first COVID death with 350,000 treated for fever spreading 'explosively', state media says

North Korea has announced its first COVID death, a day after the country confirmed its first official coronavirus case since the pandemic began.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said 350,000 people have been treated for a fever that has spread "explosively" across the country.

KCNA said five other people have died, but it wasn't immediately clear how many of the total illnesses were from COVID-19.
