US: North Korea refused help from COVAX

The United States has expressed "deep concern" about the most recent outbreak of COVID-19 in North Korea but Pyongyang has refused COVAX's donation in form of vaccines, State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, the World Health Organization (WHO) expressed the same sentiment and offered North Korea to provide it with, among other things, health equipment, medicines, and vaccines.

The United Nations (UN) and South Korea both previously offered North Korea their help in combating the pandemic.
