The coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world just months after it began in a city in China, but some countries still haven’t seen any cases.
What’s going on:
- The coronavirus has spread to multiple countries, slamming places like Italy, South Korea and the United States. There have been more than 1 million cases in total, leading to more than 55,000 deaths and 221,000 recoveries, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
- And health experts warn we’re only getting started, according to The Washington Post.
Which countries don’t have coronavirus?
- There are several countries that haven’t seen any COVID-19 cases, or at least reported them to health officials. According to BBC News, these 18 countries have not seen any coronavirus cases.
- Marshall Islands
- North Korea
- Sao Tome and Principe
- Solomon Islands
- South Sudan
The numbers might not be accurate, though
- It should be noted that some coronavirus cases are hard to track because patients have symptoms similar to the flu, which might confuse countries, especially if those areas don’t have proper testing.
- Still, seven of the world’s 10-least visited places rank among those without coronavirus cases, though, according to data from the United Nations.
