North Korea Launches Missiles into Sea of Japan as Coronavirus Rages

With the entire world facing a prolonged crisis in the form of the Covid-19 pandemic, teamwork has become the new norm…at least for most of the world.

The isolation necessary to combat the spread of this deadly strain of coronavirus will become a way of life for many in the coming months.  The illness is spreading quickly, with some estimating that Covid-19 is up to three times as contagious as the flu.  It’s going to take a great deal of cooperation for the world to overcome this crisis in a timely manner, but not everyone has taken that to heart.

Unsurprisingly, North Korea appears to be continuing their streak of insubordination this week.

The projectiles were fired around 6:45 a.m. and 6:50 a.m. from western North Korea, both flying roughly 255 miles cross-country before landing in waters off the eastern coast in the Sea of Japan, according to South Korean military officials.

Japan reported the projectiles didn’t reach Japanese territory, the Associated Press reported.

South Korea and the U.S. were analyzing the launches. It wasn’t immediately clear what weapons North Korea tested, but flight data suggested the North could have tested a mobile, solid-fuel missile system that it first demonstrated last year.

North Korea had previously, and laughably, insisted that the country had no known cases of coronavirus, despite demands from the nation’s leadership to build several new hospitals.
