N.Korea should allow outside help against virus: UN expert

A UN rights expert called for North Korea to provide access to outside medical experts amid concern over the impact the new coronavirus could have on the malnourished population.

North Korea "should allow full and unimpeded access to medical experts and humanitarian actors", said Tomas Ojea Quintana, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the country.

He also called for a "review" of the punishing sanctions imposed on North Korea, insisting that "further isolation of the country is not the answer."
