North Korea claims it has ZERO cases of coronavirus and claim they have conquered the outbreak

North Korea boasts that it has no cases of COVID-19, even as its neighbor to the north China has experienced more than 3,200 deaths from the global pandemic.

North Korean leader Kim Jung Un claims that a 30-day quarantine, a closed border and the suspension of trade with China has kept the nation free from coronavirus.

But some experts think the claim is just a cover-up.

'It's impossible for North Korea not to have a single case of coronavirus,' Jung H. Pak, a former CIA expert on North Korea, said to Fox News.

Pak said the unrealistic brag from Un is likely his way of drawing attention away from North Korea's economy, human rights violations and other criminal acts.

Leaders in North Korea's largest city of Pyongyang claim the country has been able to stave off coronavirus infections by fighting for 'national survival.'

Officials in North Korea said they found no coronavirus infections among the more than 5,400 people who were released from quarantine.
