    Pacific islands are the last best hope.
    Especially odd that Burundi has managed to escape so far.

      British Virgin Islands and St Kitts join the list.

        Unbeknownst to all of us, Easter Island has reported a case:

                  A potential case on the Falklands, but they have to send tests to the UK:

                    No new countries / territories announced for three days now. I think this might be a slow-burning competition.

                      Yes - the various nations certainly appear to have closed off the Pacific, so any future developments appear likely to occur in Africa or the South Atlantic.

                            It's listed as part of the USA, but for those who are in interested, the Northern Mariana Islands now has cases.

                              The BBC reports that with Botswana declaring its first cases, the only virus free countries in Africa are Burundi, Sierra Leone, Lesotho and Sao Tome & Principe

                                What about South Sudan? I haven't seen a case reported there yet.

                                          That's probably not good at all. I suppose the Northern Marianas have a bit more through traffic from the outside, but my guess is that they have many of the risk factors that other Pacific islands do that make it important to keep the virus out.

                                            A couple of cases reported in Burundi.

                                              First page updated thanks.

                                              Another sobering aspect of tracking this is that virtually no countries stay at the point of only having one confirmed case. There are only four such countries now (Papua New Guinea, St Vincent and Grenadines, Timor-Leste, Sierra Leone). Everywhere else has more, and cases are increasing.

                                                  I can't recall hearing that name before. Is is Aruba or what I used to know as the Netherlands Antilles?

                                                  Comment


                                                    Definitely not Aruba as that's listed separately.

                                                    Apparently consists of three small islands "Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba."
