Unvaccinated North Korean Soldiers Told To Use Saltwater

Owing to a shortage of vaccine inventory shipped from China, only soldiers who were off-base were vaccinated. As a result, unvaccinated North Korean soldiers were told to use saltwater and other types of traditional medicine to treat the virus.

Unvaccinated North Korean Soldiers Told To Use Saltwater

Due to a vaccination shortage in North Korea, the leadership is instructing unvaccinated soldiers to resort to unproven traditional cures should they develop coronavirus symptoms, according to RFA sources.

North Korea has been obtaining Chinese vaccinations for military usage and has staged well-publicized army immunization campaigns. However, not every member of the military has received the so-called “potion of love” from the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un.

Conversely, they have been instructed to seek unproven folk cures if they become ill.

“Fever continues to emerge among soldiers who could not be vaccinated due to a lack of vaccines,” a resident of South Hwanghae province on the peninsula’s western coast told RFA’s Korean Service under the basis of anonymity for security concerns.

“Military authorities are recommending folk remedies such as indoor disinfection using mugwort smoke and gargling with salt water,” she said.

Only soldiers who were off-base, according to the insider, were immunized because there was not enough vaccine inventory shipped from China.

“The vaccinations were limited to the soldiers of the military police squadron who perform crackdowns against other soldiers, the communication battalion, the divisional medical office, and the rear support battalion. Even so, soldiers within those units who are on ordinary guard duty, are known to have been excluded from the vaccination,” she said.

“Unvaccinated troops and soldiers were excluded from rural support or community service. Last year, soldiers helped rice planting and harvesting at a nearby farm. But, this spring, the authorities banned the unit from rural support activities due to fear of the spread of COVID-19,” said the source.

According to a local who spoke to RFA under the condition of anonymity so they could talk openly, just the coast guard, the military police, and the employees of military hospitals in the northeastern province of North Hamgyong are immunized.

“The military authorities are designating units and soldiers to be vaccinated separately as there is a shortage of COVID-19 vaccines. Only officers and soldiers who have been vaccinated are permitted to engage in outside activities,” the second source said.

“Most soldiers who did not get vaccinated were instructed not to leave the barracks and to prevent COVID-19 with folk remedies such as mugwort smoke disinfection and gargling salt water,” she said.

According to the source, soldiers who tended to two salmon farms—one of which Kim Jong Un once visited to offer advice on how to run it—were also exempted from vaccination. It is not unusual for locations visited by the nation’s leaders to receive special treatment long after the visit, thus it is odd that the soldiers who raised fish did not get vaccinations.

“There are complaints within the military over what authorities have implemented. The authorities have declared a national emergency and even implemented nationwide lockdown measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but they have failed to secure enough COVID-19 vaccines,” said the second source.

“Very few soldiers have been vaccinated. However, some soldiers are rather fortunate in that they were not mobilized for rural support labor because they are not vaccinated,” she said.

In May, RFA reported that the North Korean government had started a vaccination campaign for soldiers engaged in a crucial building project in Pyongyang. The ceremony, which saw troops sobbing after receiving Kim Jong Un’s “Immortal Potion of Love,” was captured on camera and utilized in propaganda.

People who were exposed to the propaganda protested that the government had only obtained enough vaccines for the military and not for the ordinary populace.

North Korea proclaimed a “maximum emergency” in May after denying for two years that the pandemic had crossed its impenetrable borders and that the virus had started to spread among attendees of a huge military parade the month before.

State media in North Korea has been broadcasting daily counts of individuals who report fever symptoms, despite the country not keeping track of verified coronavirus cases (perhaps due to a lack of testing equipment).

According to figures cited by the government-run Korea Central News Agency, 4.65 million people had fevers as of Monday, and approximately 99.4 percent of them had recovered.

  1. The ones who didn’t get the “toxic injection” should be grateful. A injection injury in N. Korea is mostly more deadly then COVID19 considering the medical treatment available.

  2. What I have been saying all along – over 29 years without me ever getting a virus must mean something: 3 minutes from preparation to job done!!

    Everything else you have read, or heard, is totally irrelevant – how simple is that?

    Covid Crusher: Mix one heaped teaspoon of Iodine table salt in a mug of warm clean water, cup a hand and sniff or snort the entire mugful up your nose, spitting out anything which comes down into your mouth. If sore, then you have a virus, so continue morning noon and night, or more often if you want, until the soreness goes away (2-3 minutes) then blow out your nose and flush away, washing your hands afterwards, until when you do my simple cure, you don’t have any soreness at all, when you flush – job done. Also swallow a couple of mouthfuls of salt water and if you have burning in your lungs, salt killing virus and pneumonia, there too.

    My simple salt water cure, kills all Coronaviruses and viruses, as soon as you think you have an infection, or while self isolating, before the viruses mutate into the disease in your head and body, for which there is no cure – that is, after you have been out shopping, or mixing with people with potentially, Omicron or Delta viruses, or any other virus.

    It washes behind the eyes, the brain bulb, brain stem (Long Covid), The Escutcheon Tubes to the inner ears and the top of the throat which is at a point roughly level with half way up your ears and not where your mouth is and down the back of your throat, when sore.

    I have been doing this simple cure for over 29 years and I am and others, never sick from viruses and there is no reason why any of you should be either – when your only alternative are those vaccines!!

    I do my simple preparation, after I have been out and about, or come into contact with people who have been vaccinated – it has kept me safe – and I hope it keeps me safe for the foreseeable future as Graphene Oxide is in the very air we breathe, outside, as well, but now from the vaccinated!!

    Simply put, if the inside of your nose is dry and crusty, you are OK, if your nose is runny, you really need to do a salt water sniffle as quickly as possible and monitor the results, to see if further salt water sniffles are necessary, but later on in that evening – so far – I remain immune from potential Covid infections, doing just this.

    No vaccines for me – ever – pass on my free cure and have those pass it on too – just imagine, for 29 years, I have NEVER been ill from viral infections and there is no reason why you should be either, if you do as I do and it costs zero too!!

  3. I can well believe your cure-all Richard, the problem in the UK nowadays is getting hold of ‘iodised table salt’, all of the common supermarket varieties no longer have Iodine but ‘SodiumferroCYANIDE’ instead as a so-called ‘anti-caking agent’!

    Perhaps the pHARMacologists knew of your simple and effective cure and have cured it themselves?

    I have taken to using only Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt from the discount stores for ingesting and the Cyanide salt for killing the moss on my patio.
