NORTH Korea has just launched a missile into the sea as the rest of the world struggles with coronavirus.
An “unidentified projectile” has been detected just days after Kim Jong Un told the world that his country was coronavirus free.
The notorious hermit nation has seemingly taken advantage of the situation in neighbouring South Korea, Japan and China to send off what is believed to be a missile.
The unknown projectile was detected flying into the East Sea according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
This is the third test this month, with previous launches having taken place on March 2 and 9 according to Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.
In spite of reports indicating that coronavirus has killed hundreds of soldiers and unknown numbers of civilians in the impoverished nation, Kim has yet to acknowledge it.
