The COVID-19 pandemic began in Asia in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and has spread widely through the continent. As of 8 June 2020, at least one case of COVID-19 had been reported in every country in Asia except North Korea and Turkmenistan.

Countries with the highest numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases are India, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. Among the earliest countries to report COVID-19 cases after the outbreak in China were South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam, but these countries had successfully controlled the pandemic. The highest numbers of deaths are recorded in Iran, India, Turkey, China, and Pakistan, with more than 27,000 deaths combined. The death tolls in a number of countries, however, are claimed to be significantly higher than those given in official figures.[4][5]

Several Southeast Asian countries experienced a significant rise in cases following a Tabligh Jamaat event from 27 February to 1 March at a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, where many people are believed to have been infected.[6][7] Similarly, events in India and Pakistan have also caused a surge in the number of cases in those countries. Major outbreaks emerged in dormitories for migrant workers in the Maldives and Singapore where social distancing was unable to be practiced and led to a significant rise in cases in both countries.[8][9]

China[edit source | edit]

Sophisticated modelling of the outbreak suggests that the number of cases in mainland China would have been many times higher without interventions such as early detection, and isolation of the infected.[32] Lua error in Module:Location_map/multi at line 27: Unable to find the specified location map definition: "Module:Location map/data/China" does not exist.


For the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak, China on Wednesday[clarification needed] revealed the presence of 1,541 asymptomatic cases carrying the deadly novel coronavirus, raising concerns of a second wave of infections amid the relaxation of stringent measures in the country initiated to contain the deadly disease.[citation needed]

Asymptomatic coronavirus cases are those who carry the virus but do not show any symptoms and can cause sporadic clusters of infections. In a surprise announcement on Tuesday, China's National Health Commission (NHC) said it would begin to release the data of asymptomatic patients.[citation needed]

A total of 1,541 asymptomatic patients infected with COVID-19 have been put under medical observation in China by the end of Monday,[clarification needed] including 205 imported cases, state-run Xinhua news agency quoted the NHC in a statement.[citation needed] Template:COVID-19 pandemic data/mainland China medical cases by province

The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic in India was reported on 30 January 2020, originating from China. As of 5 March 2021, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare have confirmed a total of 101,139 cases, 39,174 recoveries (including 1 migration) and 3,163 deaths in the country.

The outbreak has been declared an epidemic in more than a dozen states and union territories, where provisions of the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 have been invoked, and educational institutions and many commercial establishments have been shut down. India has suspended all tourist visas, as a majority of the confirmed cases were linked to other countries.

On 22 March 2020, India observed a 14-hour voluntary public curfew at the instance of the prime minister Narendra Modi. The government followed it up with lockdowns in 75 districts where COVID-19 cases had occurred as well as all major cities. Further, on 24 March, the prime minister ordered a nationwide lockdown for 21 days, affecting the entire 1.3 billion population of India. On 14 April, the prime minister extended the ongoing nationwide lockdown till 3 May. On 1 May, lockdown across the country was further extended by two more weeks till 17 May.

Michael Ryan, chief executive director of the World Health Organisation's health emergencies programme, said that India had "tremendous capacity" to deal with the coronavirus outbreak and, as the second most populous country, will have enormous impact on the world's ability to deal with it. Other commentators worried about the economic devastation caused by the lockdown, which has huge effects on informal workers, micro and small enterprises, farmers and the self-employed, who are left with no livelihood in the absence of transportation and access to markets.

Observers state that the lockdown has slowed the growth rate of the pandemic by 6 April to a rate of doubling every 6 days, and, by 18 April, to a rate of doubling every 8 days.


The Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT), in its report based on data from 73 countries, reports that the Indian Government has responded more stringently than other countries in tackling the pandemic. It noted the government's swift action, emergency policy making emergency investment in healthcare, fiscal measures, investment in vaccine research and active response to the situation, and scored India with a "100" for its strictness

Map of provinces (including Metro Manila) with confirmed COVID-19 cases (as of July 4)

The COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus reached the Philippines on January 30, 2020, when the first case of the disease was confirmed in Metro Manila. It involved a 38-year-old Chinese woman who was confined in San Lazaro Hospital in Manila. The second case was confirmed on February 2, involving a 44-year-old Chinese man who died a day earlier, which was also the first confirmed death from the disease outside mainland China.

After over a month without recording any cases, the Philippines confirmed its first local transmission on March 7, 2020. Since then, the virus spread to the country with at least one case being recorded in the country's 17 regions. Socio-economic status has been associated with the prevalence of COVID-19 cases across the country.

As of July 14, 2020, there have been 57,545 confirmed cases of the disease in the country. Out of these cases, 20,459 recoveries and 1,603 deaths were recorded.

The Philippines had a slightly lower testing capacity than its neighbors in Southeast Asia especially during the first months of the pandemic in the country. COVID-19 tests had to be taken outside the country due to the lack of testing kits. This also has led to a controversy involving several government officials which were reported to had been tested without qualifying to the DOH's triage algorithm. By the end of January 2020, the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in Muntinlupa, Metro Manila began its testing operations and became the country's first subnational laboratory. Several laboratories have been accredited by the DOH since then. As of July 13, the country has 85 subnational laboratories capable of detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus and has conducted a total of 1,017,723 tests from more than 945,146 unique individuals.

Epidemic curve of COVID-19 in South Korea

The first confirmed case of the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in South Korea was announced 20 January 2020.[116] The number of confirmed cases increased on 19 February by 20, and on 20 February by 58, giving a total of 346 confirmed cases on 21 February 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Korea (KCDC), with the sudden jump mostly attributed to "Patient No. 31" who attended a gathering at a Shincheonji Church of Jesus the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony church in Daegu.[117] As of 20 February 2020, the number of confirmed cases in South Korea was the third largest after China and the infections on the Diamond Princess.[citation needed] By 24 February, the number of confirmed cases in South Korea was the second largest;[118] as of 14 March 2020, the number was the fourth largest. A reason for the high number of confirmed cases is the high number of tests conducted. In South Korea more than 66,650 people were tested within a week of its first case of community transmission, and South Korea quickly became able to test 10,000 people a day.[119]

Due to Syria already coping with the rampant civil war, fearing that Syria will be the most affected country is raising concerns, following a number of cases found in neighboring Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan, and collapsed healthcare system as the result of the civil war.[120] The Government of Iraqi Kurdistan, in a rare collaboration with its Syrian counterpart on 2 March, ordered complete closure of Syrian–Iraqi border to halt the spread.[121]
