Some people do ask whether there are “countries without Coronavirus reported case” well the truth of the matter is that even though cases have not been reported in these countries, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the pandemic does not exist. But aside that, there are actually countries without Coronavirus reported case for the time being. Although citizens in Turkmenistan are already afraid of suggesting Covid-19 may already be in the country. These countries have not also relented in following suits towards ensuring the mitigation of this disease.
There are lots of countries without Coronavirus reported case. Surprisingly, Asian country like North Korea has not reported any case considering the fact that their neighboring countries, South Korea and Japan have already had cases from the virus. One of the measures taken by this country is self-isolation from other parts of the world.
Turkmenistan, another secretive country which is notorious for censorship, has also reported zero instances of COVID-19. North Korea and Turkmenistan may also be benefiting from their isolation as well. With few travelers in and out, the virus has fewer opportunities to enter these countries. But this is only reasonable up to a point: Analysts believe smugglers continue business with North Korea, and Turkmenistan doesn’t necessarily have the strongest border controls.
The largest of the Oceanic states to not have a confirmed COVID-19 case is the Solomon Islands, with a population just over 600,000. The Pacific, in my mind, has benefited from a kind of isolation and early efforts to head off what could be a total disaster. Tajikistan also falls closer to this category than the Pacific, as an autocratic state with a demonstrated history of difficulty with the truth.
The virus also remains mostly undetected in the smaller Pacific island nations such as the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Tajikistan also is far less isolated than Turkmenistan. It should deeply concern Dushanbe that the first cases in neighboring Kyrgyzstan, identified in mid-March, sprung from individuals who had recently traveled to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
Coming over to Africa, there are about two countries that have not reported any Covid-19 case -Lesotho and Comoros. According to the WHO official statistics, these two countries are the only remaining countries in Africa that are still free of the Coronavirus. In recent days, both South Sudan and Sierra Leone reported their first cases, some of the most recent African countries to do so. This has brought the number of African countries to have reported cases to 52, leaving only two out (Comoros and Lesotho).

A Bit History, Symptoms and Cases Recorded
Coronavirus disease is the most deadly pandemic on planet earth that has caused lots of havoc across the globe. Currently about 1.49 million+ cases have been recorded so far with about 88,000+ deaths according to the global figure. Tagged “Covid-19” by scientists and dated back in China, the name Coronavirus comes from the Latin word corona, meaning crown or halo. Under an electron microscope, the virus looks like it is surrounded by a solar corona.
Efforts have been made to determine where exactly this disease originated from the Chinese health organization, but it’s known as of now that this disease originated from a market in Wuhan, China. This is a place where wildlife has been traded illegally for several years, meaning that the virus could have spread from an infected animal species to human through illegally-trafficked Pangolins, which are prized in Asia for food and medicine.
The symptoms of this disease are fever and a dry cough, which can sometimes lead to breathing problems. This also makes it very difficult for the lung. If you continue coughing a lot for more than you usually have a cough, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, then know that you’re on a danger zone.
