Maybe, but only if it didn’t get into his mouth, eyes or nose first.

It’s similar to why you wash your hands after handling spicy food – it doesn’t hurt on your skin but it’s no fun when you absentmindedly rub your eyes.

I’m sure DPRK had everything to do with this, but instead of being so confrontational it makes their guilt more obvious, they really need to learn to just pull the time honored “We’re saddened by his death and look forward to justice being brought forward to those responsible”.
