Leader´s Health – level 3

27-04-2020 07:00

The health of the North Korea leader, Kim Jong-un, is in question.

Kim was last seen publicly at a coronavirus prevention meeting on April 11. South Korean media reported that Kim, who is 36, underwent cardiovascular surgery on April 12. He did not attend his grandfather´s birthday celebration on April 15, which is a major holiday in the country. This contributed to speculations about his health.

According to CNN, the US is seeking more details about Kim´s health, however, there have been conflicting reports, and it is difficult to know if concerns about Kim´s health are real. South Korea officials said that there was no evidence that confirms speculations over Kim´s health, and nothing unusual has been monitored in North Korea so far.

North Korea has been led by the Kim family dynasty since the nation was founded in 1948.

Difficult words: cardiovascular (relating to the heart and blood vessels), conflicting (different or in opposition with one another), dynasty (leaders who belong to the same family and they rule a country for a period of time).
