Certified cases of the new Novel Corona virus have now surfaced in 213 countries and regions of the world, resulting in more than 24 million illnesses and over 65,000 deaths.
The virus has spread to every continent of the world except Antarctica, but cases are reported in almost every corner of the globe, but there are still 15 countries where no case has been reported so far.

Now it’s due to poor surveillance and health systems, information censorship or something else, but some regions are still declared safe from the virus.
Two African countries
Two countries in the continent are still protected from the virus, one of which is Kamruz (a country on the southeast coast of Africa) and a densely populated Lesotho.
How these two countries are protected from the virus is difficult to say, but both are likely due to their geographical position and the absence of foreign tourists.
No case has been reported in Lesotho, but in March there was an emergency enforcement lockdown, but now the country is in a state of political turmoil as police investigate a murder by Prime Minister Tom Thomas against Thabane. Later the Prime Minister had deployed the army.
The World Health Organization is vibrant and has been helping to check the virus in people coming to the country since January, when events and public gatherings were banned in March.
10 lucky countries consisting of the Mediterranean Islands
10 out of 15 virus-protected countries or regions are the smaller countries comprising the islands of the Mediterranean, including the Caribbean, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
In all these countries lockdown or national emergency was implemented to prevent Cod 19 while the entry of persons from countries affected by the epidemic was banned.
Emergency enforcement, activity restrictions and borders were closed in Micronesia, Vanuatu, Kiribati and Tonga.
Solomon Islands is one of the first countries to ban entry of citizens from the affected countries.
Three Asian countries
North Korea, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan are the 3 countries in Asia where no corona virus case has been confirmed so far.
North Korea is a neighboring country in China that was first affected by the outbreak, while cases of virus have been reported in all countries around Korea, but the country says it is still protected from the Corona virus. System health is poor.
Similarly, Central Asian countries Tajikistan and Turkmenistan are the most isolated countries in the world where there are few tourists, while censorship is also very strong there.
Turkmenistan borders Iran, which is one of the few countries affected by the outbreak; the use of the word “Corona” has been banned there,
Similarly, in Tajikistan, journalists are very much under ban, so providing free information is difficult.
