The closures came after a North Korean defector, who had symptoms of Covid-19, illegally crossed the border from South Korea into North Korea.

North Korea itself has extended the implementation of a regional lockdown and restrictions on movement between provinces.

The move made the number of North Korean defectors arriving in South Korea the lowest in history.

Relations between the two Koreas became bleak after talks between North Korea and the United States on nuclear disarmament ended in a stalemate following the 2019 summit between North Korean and US leaders. (ant/dil/mcr20/jpnn)
