As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to extend to almost every part of the world, it is safe to say that most people have, in one way or another, felt the impact.\nHowever, there are still a handful of countries that have yet to record a single positive case, according to the World Health Organization.\nEditor's Choice: Here Is Everything You’re Still Allowed To Do During Ontario’s Shutdown\n\n\n\n15\n\n\nCountries and territories without cases\n\n\nMany of these are island nations, perhaps making it easier for them to secure their borders.\nThe complete list of countries and territories with zero recorded COVID-19 cases are as follows: \n\nTuvalu\nTonga\nTokelau\nSamoa\nSt Helena\nPitcairn Islands\nPalua\nNiue\nNauru\nMicronesia\nKiribati\nCook Islands\nAmerican Samoa\n\nLife in these nations is vastly different than the realities that many others are facing.\nIn American Samoa, "we have public events just like normal,” Kelley Anderson Tagarino told Buzzfeed News. \n"All the little kids were hanging out together playing in the pool, chasing each other, and the adults were hanging out talking, swimming, drinking beers, just like usual. We hug. We can do all the things without a mask," she continued.\n\nThe above list accounts for all but two COVID-19-free nations — Turkmenistan and North Korea.\nThese two countries are the only non-island nations included on the list.\nAccording to Reuters, North Korea tested for its first case in August of 2020, but the results were inconclusive. The country has preventatively isolated 3,635 primary and secondary contacts. \nIt is important to note that these countries have yet to report a positive test. However, cases could still be present and undetected.\nSo far, there have been 76,023,488 global cases of the novel coronavirus.
