Cayman among only 13 countries worldwide with zero active COVID cases

Outside of 11 countries in the world that have never reported even one case of COVID-19, there are 13 countries — including our little islands of Cayman — that have managed to suppress the virus to the point that there are zero active cases.

There are 18 countries with less than or equal to one active case and 22 countries with less than or equal to two active cases.

The great news for the Caribbean region is that of the 13 countries with no active cases, four of them are from the Caribbean; of the five countries with only one active case, two of them are from the Caribbean (Montserrat and St Barth) and of the four countries with only two active cases, two are from the Caribbean (St Kitts & Nevis and St Lucia).

This means that just under half of countries with two or fewer active cases are from the Caribbean region, which is quite impressive given that these islands are such a major tourism hot spot and the outbreak occurred in the midst of tourism season.

In addition to the Cayman Islands, here is the list of countries with zero active cases. This list is accurate to 8 am on July 28 and can change at any time.

San Marino

Isle of Mann

Brunei

Macao

Timor-Leste

Grenada

New Caledonia

Dominica

Falkland Islands

Vatican City

British Virgin Islands
