These People Escaped From North Korea On A Hand-Pushed Trolley

The eight people, including a 3-year-old girl, took the train and bus to go from the capital Pyongyang in order to come close to the Russian border.

When COVID-19 first broke out, a group of Russian diplomats, along with their families, got on a tiring journey across the country to leave the secretive state, and they had to use a hand-pushed railway trolley.

Russia’s foreign ministry reported that the eight people, including a 3-year-old girl, took the train and bus to go from the capital Pyongyang in order to come close to the Russian border.

However, they had to put their belongings on the trolley while the third secretary of the embassy had to push them for the last kilometer through the countryside in North Korea.

According to the foreign ministry, the borders had been closed for over a year, the passenger communication was stopped, making it extremely difficult to get home.

As the group got to the border, the ministry said they met their colleagues and were taken to the Vladivostok airport.

Officially, North Korea hasn’t recorded any COVID-19 cases though this claim may have been treated with skepticism internationally.

The coronavirus pandemic broke out late last year and has since infected over 100 million people around the world. Its influence on humanity is not limited to the healthcare matter but has also expanded to economy and security. Countries have had to close borders and halted international travels to reduce the spread of the virus. North Korea, which has long been known for its highly distinct relationship with the rest of the world, has had a natural restriction against the spread of the disease.
