North Korea is the 29th country to register the coronavirus as a suspected patient affected in Denmark
North Korea has become the twenty-ninth country or territory to record a case of the murderous corona virus, it is claimed.
A local resident returned from China before being tested positive for the deadly virus, according to local media.
Sources told an English newspaper that the woman is from Pyongyang, the capital of the hermit Asian nation.
No further details on how she entered the country have been given – North Korea was one of the first countries to close its borders to curb the murderous outbreak.
With further developments, a woman from China became ill at the airport in Copenhagen, Denmark, leaving a small area. If the tests come back positive, this would be the first case to be diagnosed in Danish soil.
The coronavirus epidemic has been confirmed in nearly 30 countries and territories around the world, killing 638 and more than 31,500 people.

North Korea borders China, where 99 percent of the 31,500 are infected. The coronavirus epidemic has so far claimed 638 lives and infected more than 31,500 people in 28 countries and territories around the world
The North Korean case has not yet been confirmed by officials, only reported by the English version of the South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo.
Officials have been vigilant in isolating travelers from abroad and testing for corona virus at airports.
During this process, the woman from Pyongyang, with a population of nearly three million, was highlighted.
North Korea borders China, where 99 percent of the 31,500 are infected. But is the only adjacent territory that has so far remained away from the deadly virus.
The withdrawn country was one of the first to close its borders completely for travelers and flights from China and introduced the measure on January 21.
It is therefore not clear where the woman flew from when she returned from China.
Given the North Korean news that there were zero coronavirus patients on Sunday, it is assumed that the woman was detected on Monday.
Song In-bomb, a North Korean health official, appeared on Korean central television by the state on Sunday evening to reassure the public.
However, Song said it wasn’t “time to be relieved” because the virus could still read the north. There was a demand for ‘civil awareness’.

Kenni Leth, press officer at Copenhagen airport, said the woman arrived in China from Helsinki via Helsinki, The Guardian reports.
The passenger contacted the airport staff on Friday morning around 7:40 am because she felt ill.
She appeared to have flu-like symptoms characteristic of the new coroan virus and hurried to the hospital in the city.

The vast majority of the confirmed infections of the Wuhan coronavirus have been diagnosed in China.
But more than 25 countries or areas outside the mainland have also declared infections:

“An area of terminal three where the woman has contacted the staff has been deposited and will be cleaned according to the procedure.
‘You can still easily go to Terminal 3 and use most of the terminal. It does not affect airport traffic. “
