Kim Jong Un 'seriously ill' during North Korea Covid outbreak, reveals sister

Pyongyang/IBNS: Kim Jong Un's sister revealed that the North Korean leader suffered from a "high fever" during a recent Covid-19 outbreak in the country, reports said.

Kim Yo Jong blamed "South Korean puppets" for sending "dirty objects" across the border in leaflets carried by balloons, the official Korean Central News Agency reported Thursday.

The revelation of her brother's illness is an unusual admission for a regime that rarely comments on the leader's health.

Kim Yo Jong said in a speech that the North Korean leader was "seriously ill" during his bout with fever, according to KCNA.

She, however, added that her brother "could not lie down for even a moment because of his concerns for the people."

She didn't say whether the elder Kim was among what North Korea calls "fever cases" or specify the date of his illness.

Kim Jong Un reportedly went about 17 days without an appearance in state media last month.

Although the North Korean leader often takes breaks in summer to spend time at his seaside mansion and megayacht.
