North Korea has plenty of doctors: WHO

GENEVA (Reuters) – North Korea’s health system would be the envy of many developing countries because of the abundance of medical staff that it has available, the head of the World Health Organization said on Friday.

WHO Director-General Margaret Chan, speaking a day after returning from a 2-1/2 day visit to the reclusive country, said malnutrition was a problem in North Korea but she had not seen any obvious signs of it in the capital Pyongyang.

Judging the state of the country (North Korea) by the Pyongyang, is like going into a Marriott to report on homelessness. Pyongyang is reserved for the party’s supporters. This is a place where the people are provided for in a MUCH different way than those in the nether regions.

The WHO director, at least as reported here, has probably given the North the best source of propaganda in years. Congratulations on your naivete.
