The bulk of the states that have not yet reported cases are small Pacific Island nations, followed by a handful in Asia and Africa.
A totalitarian and highly secretive state, statistics hardly comes out of North Korea,the beleaguered country hasn’t reported any cases. The already isolated state took preventative steps early, sealing its border with China in January, denying all foreign travelers from entering, but North Korea watchers are skeptical of the state’s no-case claim.
A lack of testing capacity, a situation arguably worsened by international sanctions; a weak healthcare system; and a high degree of state secrecy are all reasons for reasonable skepticism. Whether North Korea just can’t tell if it has cases or is blatantly lying are both reasonable options.
Meanwhile, it is yet to be seen whether the reasons these 13 countries have no case of coronavirus is due to lack of testing capacity,COVID-19 propaganda,or pure falsehoods or secrecy.
CAVEAT: As at the time of writing this article, there was not reported case of coronavirus in these countries but time changes everything. The COVID19 status of these 13 countries can change at any time.
