A North Korean government official who visited a public facility after being quarantined for COVID-19 has reportedly been executed by authorities.
Citing North Korean sources, the South Korean daily, Donga Ilbo reports that the official, who was quarantined for two weeks for having visited China, sneaked into a public bath early this month.
Following North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's order to punish those who leave quarantine under the regime's military law, the official was reportedly arrested and shot dead.
The report also said a senior-level executive who concealed a recent visit to China has been demoted to a farmer after being caught.
