About eight months after the corona virus was declared a global pandemic, the virus has now started reaching countries that were hitherto free of Covid-19. On Wednesday, the first case of corona was also found in the Pacific island country of Vanuatu. Apart from this, virus cases have also been reported in Marshall Island and Solomon Islands.
After servicing a ship with Corona positive crew members in Samoa Island, a local employee is placed in Quarantine. According to the report of time.com, it is believed that there are only 9 such countries left on earth where corona cases have not been confirmed. However, they do not include North Korea and Turkmenistan as the virus is believed to have reached these countries, but it has not been officially accepted.
Countries with various islands in the Pacific Ocean closed their borders after the epidemic began. But now these countries have also come under the grip of corona in some way. Vanuatu’s health department has said that a 23-year-old youth was found to be Corona positive after returning from the US.
The first case on Solomon Island was revealed in early October, after which many other people have also been found infected. Experts say that it will not be easy for the local administration to control the virus if it spreads in many small countries on the island, because the health services in such countries are very limited. At the same time, more than 13 lakh 11 thousand people have died from Corona. Corona has the highest number of deaths in the US (249,998).
