The death toll is reaching nearly 38,000, according to figures compiled by U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University.
However, 16 countries some from Pacific nations and others from the Africa and Asia region have no confirmed cases so far.
In Africa, the countries of Lesotho, South Sudan, Yemen, Sierra Leone, Burundi, and Malawi and the region of Western Sahara to date have not reported any coronavirus cases.
In Asia, countries such as Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and North Korea also have no reported cases.
There are also some Pacific Island nations, popular tourist destinations during normal times, which are apparently untouched by the virus thanks to their isolation and remoteness.
These countries and regions include Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu, the Cook Islands, Niue, and Tuvalu.
