News coming in from all corners of the world indicates that youthful North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is in ‘vegetative state’, also known as ‘Medically Dead’ according to Japanese media, although the government in Pyongyang, North Korea, remains loudly silent about his health condition.
As a result of the silence in Pyongyang, the North Korean dictator’s health condition remains a mystery, although reports circulating in Asian media indicate that he was in ‘grave condition’ following a cardiovascular surgery.
Shukan Gendai, a Japanese media outlet, reports how the surgeon in charge of Kim’s operation was not used to dealing with obese patients and was too nervous during the operation, leading to delays that left Kim in a “vegetative state.”
The magazine cited an unnamed member of Kim’s medical team.

Meanwhile, Reuters reported Friday that China had dispatched a team that included medical experts to North Korea following conflicting reports regarding Kim’s health.
The Chinese Communist Party’s International Liaison Department departed for North Korea on Thursday. Those involved are keeping quiet about the nature of the trip, and even the sources that reported on the trip are keeping quiet regarding what it means for Kim’s current state.

However, despite the rumours, South Korean government officials initially reported on Tuesday that Kim was handling state affairs as usual, and that the government showed “no unusual activity” following allegations of his poor health.
South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, in response to the reports, said “it’s not true” and there was “no specific trend.”
But on Wednesday, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. John Hyten said he has “no reason not to assume” that Kim Jong Un is still in control of the country. White House officials confirmed to Fox News that they were monitoring the situation, but couldn’t divulge nothing further.
On Thursday President Trump said he thought reports indicating Kim was ill were “incorrect.”
“I’m hearing they used old documents,” Trump said when asked about Kim during the White House’s daily Coronavirus press briefing. “I hear the report was an incorrect report. I hope it was an incorrect report,” he stressed.
