Africa[edit source | edit]
Cases have been confirmed in most African countries and territories. According to Michael Yao, WHO's head of emergency operations in Africa, early detection is vital because the continent's health systems "are already overwhelmed by many ongoing disease outbreaks". Advisers say that a strategy based on testing could allow African countries to minimise lockdowns that inflict enormous hardship on those who depend on income earned day by day to be able to feed themselves and their families. Even in the best scenario, the United Nations says 74 million test kits and 30,000 ventilators will be needed by the continent's 1.3 billion people in 2020. Most of the reported cases are from four countries: South Africa, Morocco, Egypt and Algeria, but it is believed that there is widespread under-reporting in other African countries with poorer health care systems. As of 2 May, cases have been confirmed in all African countries except for Lesotho. There have been no reported cases in the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha.
Antarctica[edit source | edit]
Asia[edit source | edit]
A cluster of mysterious pneumonia cases was detected in December 2019 in Wuhan and eventually spread to the rest of China. Afterwards, many other Asian countries started to confirm cases, with some of the most affected countries being South Korea, Turkey and Iran. A number of countries such as India and Malaysia also experience a surge in cases following religious gathering events in those countries. As of 30 April, cases have been reported in all Asian countries except for North Korea and Turkmenistan, both of which have suspected cases. No cases have been reported in the disputed state of South Ossetia. The lack of cases in North Korea is disputed, given not only its border with China but also because the country's health system never really recovered from SARS and H1N1 in the 2000s.
Europe[edit source | edit]
A small number of initial cases in Europe were reported in France, Germany and other countries. On 21 February, a large outbreak was reported in Italy, mostly in the north near Milan. Cases grew rapidly as the outbreak spread across Europe. Cases have been reported in all European countries after Montenegro reported a case on 17 March, and in almost all European territories after the Isle of Man on 19 March, the disputed state of Transnistria on 21 March and Åland Islands on 22 March reported cases. No cases have been reported in Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands.. The WHO declared Europe as the new center of the virus after the situation improved in China.
North America[edit source | edit]
The first cases in North America were reported in the United States in January 2020. Cases were reported in all North American countries after Saint Kitts and Nevis confirmed a case on 25 March, and in all North American territories after Bonaire confirmed a case on 16 April.
On 26 March 2020, the U.S. became the country with the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 infections, with over 82,000 cases. On 11 April 2020, the U.S. became the country with the highest official death toll for COVID-19, with over 20,000 deaths. As of 2 May 2020 the total cases of COVID-19 were 1,092,815, with 64,238 total deaths.
Canada reported 60,616 cases and 3,842 deaths on 4 May, while Mexico reported 23,471 cases and 2,154 deaths. The Dominican Republic and Cuba are the only Caribbean countries reporting more than 1,000 cases (7,954 and 1,649, respectively), while Panama and Honduras lead Central America with 7,197 and 1,055 cases, respectively.
Oceania[edit source | edit]
The first confirmed case was in Melbourne, Victoria on 25 January. Many small Pacific island nations have thus far avoided the outbreak by closing their international borders. As of 24 April, no cases have been reported in American Samoa (territory of the United States), Christmas Island (external territory of Australia), the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (external territory of Australia), the Cook Islands (associated state of New Zealand), Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue (associated state of New Zealand), Norfolk Island (external territory of Australia), Palau, the Pitcairn Islands (British Overseas Territory), Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau (territory of New Zealand), Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Wallis and Futuna (French overseas collectivity).
As of 2 May, ten countries in Oceania have not reported any case of coronavirus: Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
As of 5 May, 8,227 cases have been reported in Oceania; the five countries reporting the most cases are: Australia (6,825), New Zealand (1,137), Guam (149), French Polynesia (58), and Fiji (18). 122 deaths have been reported in the region: Australia (95), New Zealand (20), Guam (5), and Northern Mariana Islands (2).
South America[edit source | edit]
As of 19 March, cases have been confirmed in all South American countries. Cases were confirmed in all South American territories, as cases were confirmed in the Falkland Islands on 3 April.
The coronavirus was first reported in South America on 26 February when Brazil confirmed a case in São Paulo. Since then, governments across the region have taken an array of actions to protect their citizens and contain the spread of COVID-19. Brazil reported 100,000 cases of infection and 7,000 deaths on May 3, becoming the ninth highest number of cases in the world.
The other South American countries with the highest number of cases are Peru (45,928), Ecuador (29,538), Chile (19,663), Colombia (7,668), Argentina (4,783), and Bolivia (1,594). Bouvet Island and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have not reported any cases as of 2 May.
International conveyances[edit source | edit]
Cruise operators have either cancelled or changed their itineraries as countries across the world implement travel restrictions to curb the disease. Ports are refusing to accept cruise ships that have either been to Chinese ports or are carrying Chinese passengers.
The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), which represents 90% of cruise operators, announced the various precautionary measures being implemented by its members. All passengers who have traveled to or visited/transited through China (including Hong Kong and Macau) within 14 days before embarkation will be denied entry into cruise ships. Any persons in close contact with either suspected or diagnosed cases of coronavirus infection will also be denied entry.
