    You could theoretically quarantine every suspected case and everyone who has had contact with a suspected case, and still not get any positive results.

    It depends on why you were suspicious.

    I know. I was challenging the idea that the most draconian response always results in the most successful result. Its always assumed that quarantining healthy people is effective. What if it isn't?

    Was that official reporting of cases on one day? Or the number of times he contradicated himself in interviews. Whats it from? While i would not be surprised if the North Korean official statistics were contradictory. Its not funny, it is dark and I don't like it at all, neither would anyone living there not brain-washed by his regime.

    This might be my favorite post ever...

    I think it's a pretty safe bet that...

    1. Kim Jong Un isn't on Twitter.
    2. If he was, he doesn't have "@SupremeLeader" as his Twitter handle
    3. It's clearly a joke, not official in any way.
    4. The joke is that as soon as a case of Covid pops up....he kills the person....reducing the count back to 0.

    Now, I suppose that you can find it too dark or not amusing....humor is subjective....but perhaps consider that this is the way some people deal with the situation

    I'll repeat, but as it was obvious I was skeptical, why would i have asked "where it was from?" I'll not waste time arguing.

    Now while I know some folks even use famous people screen names, can you nevertheless tell us why is it a safe bet, when Trump and other leaders actually do use Twitter?

    Now as to its being funny, yes humour is subjective, but as people go missing and are murdered under his regime, I don't find it funny, and I have a healthy sense of humour.

    But if humour is subjective then what is wrong with me not finding it funny? You are not trying to say it was objectively funny are you? Consider this that others deal with it in a different manner.

    Why would he use Twitter? Who is he going to talk to?

    Smartphones aren't exactly common in N Korea.

    Good, we agree.

    Absolutely nothing.

    No...I just said humor is subjective.

    Well the DPRK would certainly be a candidate for the most draconian response, however I don't see general quarantining measures an example of this. What is it that you want to discuss? How the DPRK is managing covid or how the rest of the world is managing covid?

    I daresay their immune systems are begging for industrial processed foods.

    Who needs a smartphone to view Twitter? Why would he be only talking to folks in his own country?

    Who would he talk to? Who would he put messages out to do you mean? Who does anyone on Twitter talk to? - everyone in the wider world who uses Twitter perhaps?

    The smartphone is essential to the success of Twitter. I don't see a lot of people hopping on the PC to check it. It's probably worth pointing out they don't have PCs either.

    Who else would he talk to?

    I am finding it hard to understand your incomprehension - you think he lives in closed psyche and under house arrest or something - why would it even matter what is needed for the success of twitter the FACT remains it can be viewed on a computer. Nice detraction but not to the point. How do you think he communicates with those outside his country - via carrier pigeon?
