North Korean chief Kim Jong Un has misplaced as much as 44 kilos however has no main well being points affecting his rule, based on a South Korean lawmaker briefed by a spy company, reviews Bloomberg.

The National Intelligence Service estimated that Kim just lately misplaced between 10 and 20 kilograms (44 kilos), Kim Byung-kee, a lawmaker briefed by the spy company advised reporters on Thursday. “If there is an abnormality in his health, there should be signs that drugs are being imported to the clinic that’s in charge of Kim’s health, but that was not detected, adding that Kim Jong Un still hosts hours-long meetings and there’s nothing unusual about how he walks,” the lawmaker added.

Kim was out of public appearance for much of the month of May and when he reappeared in a June video showing him chairing a government meeting, he looked much slimmer. The state media later ran a story citing a citizen as saying North Koreans broke down in tears at the sight of the thinner Kim, comments that could have been aimed at building public support as he tries to revive a sickly economy.

Kim’s weight is tracked by spy agencies for insights about the autocratic and secretive regime in Pyongyang especially since his family has a history of heart disease. South Korean spies told lawmakers in November last year that Kim weighed about 140 kilograms.

Another lawmaker Ha Tae-keung said that there is no evidence that Kim has had a coronavirus vaccine.

Kim warned last month that the “food situation is now getting tense.” His nation’s perennial shortages have been made worse by typhoons final yr that worn out crops and Kim’s resolution to close borders resulting from Covid-19.
