Since Thailand, Japan and South Korea reported the first cases of COVID-19 outside China on January 20, the novel coronavirus has swept across much of the globe — 92.4% of it, in fact. As of May 6, a total of *182* nations have reported infections of the novel coronavirus. Comoros became the most recent country to confirm a case on Apr 30, which means Lesotho is the last-remaining country in Africa without a case.

But the virus has not reached every nation, yet.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University and individual search data on each country researched by RT magazine, *15* nations and 6 territories have yet to report infections.

Those 15 nations (and 6 territories) are as follows: (listed by continent/region)
