Countries Unaffected By Coronavirus
Irrespective of Millions of deaths recorded as the pandemic, coronavirus ravages several nations in the world; 34 countries has no record of any confirmed case.
As of April 20, 2020, 213 countries and terrorities of the 247 recognised by the United Nations have seen at least one case of the COVID-19. Of these, 186 have also experienced local transmission — where the virus is spread amongst the local community.
From the 213 countries that have cases, at least 162 have also confirmed at least one fatality.
However, just because a nation has not reported an infection, it does not necessarily mean there have been no cases. For example, North Korea has not reported any cases but it is bordered by China, Russia, and South Korea, all dealing with a high number of cases, meaning the virus may well have made it into the secretive state.
All countries in North America and the Middle East have had at least one case of COVID-19.
Most of the places yet to report a case of the virus are small, hard-to-reach island nations, many in the Pacific. Several such as Nauru, Tuvalu, Pitcairn, Tokelau and Niue are some of the least-populated places in the world.
Only eight of the 29 countries and territories in Oceania have reported cases.
Countries and territories without any cases of COVID-19 include:
Bouvet Island South Georgia South Sandwich Islands
North Korea Tajikistan Turkmenistan
Aland Islands Channel Islands Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands
British Indian Ocean Territory Comoros French Southern Territories Lesotho Saint Helena
American Samoa Christmas Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands Cook Islands Heard Island and McDonald Islands Kiribati Marshall Islands Micronesia (Federated States of) Nauru Niue Norfolk Island Palau Pitcairn Samoa Solomon Islands Tokelau Tonga Tuvalu United States Minor Outlying Islands Vanuatu Wallis and Futuna Islands
