ok think about it 

if the corona virus pandemic gets worse hypothetically, 

north korea would be the only country to survive due to them being the only ones to do whatever it takes to keep the virus out of the country 

going as far as to kill the first coronavirus patient 

imagine a world like that...... 


that in an alternate reality this actually happened and kim jong un took over everything 

blows my mind

The virus would need to be a lot worse, since military age people are not in the main at risk population. Our defense does not depend on our politicians.

Plus for North Korea to venture out on a campaign of domination before the world recovers, they would in turn be exposing themselves.

Countries who are communist are hiding cases to make them look better. I'm sure they have cases as well, but are hiding it. North Korea will never rise in a modern world.

Well, the disease's present mortality rate is about 3.4% and once we start testing whole populations and see that we aren't recording the majority of cases, that mortality rate will drop below 1%.

No nation has ever failed to survive due to a 1% die off.  Many populations, biologically speaking, see strong benefits from occasional minor die offs.

All the indicators at that North Korea is hit hard.  Kim closed borders to all outsiders on Jan 22- very early which suggests early infection.  No. Korea's official report is that there are no cases but intelligence reports are that No Korea has been urgently pleading for tests, masks, respirators, etc for months  Kim did not order social distancing until last week and still hasn't told his subjects to stay at home.

No Korea is particularly vunerable: aging pop with high rates of heart and lung disease, tuberculosis and hepatitis are endemic, many men still smoke and a healthcare system decades behind most countries. 

If we were ever able to discover the truth about COVID in No Korea, I'd expect to see much higher rates of infection and death than most places.

No. Kim Jon Un was suppressing people that they either hated life or didn't know how bad it is. If his suppression passed a value, then people will uprise and make the country a melted pot. Then a new government would prevail out of war and the country is even more impaired. Still expecting a better leader, huh.
