COVID- 19 FREE countries as of today

COVID- 19 virus spread, which began in Wuhan, China, now caught on to most parts of the world. The majority of governments blame the WHO for not imposing travel bans early on when Wuhan first reported the crisis. This is now a full-blown global pandemic, which has brought our economies to halt. Countries have no choice other than resorting to lockdown their citizens to their homes to stay safe and reduce further spread of the virus. Many countries shut their borders. The economies will face a major backlash if the spread isn’t curbed anytime soon.

 
cases reported all over the globe are on a rise, and we are losing this battle against the virus, by the looks of it. Circumstances are looking uncertain and this is creating anxiety everywhere. Although there is a good rate of recovery, the number of people contracting the virus is not reducing. Scientists are working vigorously in most nations trying to invent a cure/vaccine for COVID-19.
 
In this background, here’s a list of countries that have not reported even a single positive COVID- 19 case :
 
Lesotho and Comoros in Africa.
Kiribati in the Middle East.
Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Samoa in Oceania.
North Korea.
Tajikistan.
Tonga.
Turkmenistan.
Tuvalu.
Vanuatu
 
There are various reports, studying the reason for this trend. This is essential for understanding how to secure our nations even more wisely. But many scholars believe that these are distant locations which haven’t attracted any tourism for long periods, and continue to do so. A few countries are being accused of not reporting the real situation. Few others seem to have no testing kits or facilities to handle the situation. Most of the above-mentioned countries contain low levels of the population. A few including Kiribati, Nauru, and Tonga, already declared a national emergency to avoid contracting the virus.
 
New Zealand is one such country that has completely recovered from the hit of COVID- 19. They have successfully contained the community spread of COVID- 19 and can now begin to ease their lockdown measures. Yemen, on the other hand, has reportedly only a single case.
