As of March 26, 2020, there are only 19 countries in the world with no reported cases of coronavirus. This is out of the 195 countries/UN member states in the world, meaning 176 countries out of 195 have at least one confirmed case of COVID-19.
The 19 COVID-19 free countries (in alphabetical order) are:
- North Korea (coastal)
- São Tomé and Príncipe
- Sierra Leone (coastal)
- South Sudan
- Yemen (coastal)
Notice the destinations are mostly island nations and coastal nations, as well as 7 landlocked countries. At initial glance, they are countries that don’t get a lot of tourism, due to low tourism infrastructure or limited flights.
