I keep finding sites that list or map countries WITH Coronavirus. I'd like the inverse - a list of currently covid-19 free countries to travel to WITHOUT the virus.

    You stating you want a list of countries (without reported cases) to travel to. Do not do this. You might not be able to come back to your country due to future flight restrictions. The other thing is: there is a non neglectible chance that some of these countries health system isnso disfuntional that the reason for zero reported cases is that they either dont know they have cases or dont want to know. – lalala Mar 29 '20 at 10:36

    Comments unlocked for now but please only post comments on whether this question does fit on the site or why is does not. All other comments will be wiped as they should have been posted in the chatroom. – Willeke Mar 31 '20 at 10:32

    A meta post about this question, for further discussion: I think a question is off-topic but it's been under bounty for three weeks. What can I do? – V2Blast Apr 1 '20 at 6:04

    I think this question is off-topic. No traveller has any practical use of a list of countries that aren't affected by COVID-19. It doesn't matter, because one shouldn't and possibly can't travel there now anyway. – gerrit Apr 1 '20 at 7:39

    @Willeke even then, it's ephemeral. Would an equivalent question asking for places that didn't experience the 1918 Spanish Flu be considered a useful travel question today? Maybe that would be a good History question, but it's not useful for travelers today. – Robert Columbia Apr 1 '20 at 13:32

Please move countries to the second list below as they confirm infections, with a link to an official source. The ArcGIS dashboard is good enough to be considered official.

Countries / territories with zero reported infections

  1. Kiribati
  2. Nauru
  3. North Korea
  4. Palau
  5. Tonga
  6. Turkmenistan
  7. Tuvalu

Countries with reported infections

  • @AndrewGrimm we had an original list. Definitely some are missing but are probably included in the lower list (eg Greenland). Besides, it has cases. If we're missing countries/territories in the top list, I think that's more important for this question. – Mark Mayo Mar 19 '20 at 4:52
  • Samoa has a suspected case – CGCampbell Mar 19 '20 at 17:34
  • I think North Korea had a suspected case too, but he was reportedly executed for breaking quarantine. – zeocrash Mar 25 '20 at 16:06
  • This answers the question of where, but to fully answer the question "of countries to travel to," list 1 needs an indication if the countries are restricting visitors. If they really have no cases, then they would be wise to do so. – Damila Mar 30 '20 at 14:54

    @zeocrash An extreme, yet effective way of keeping your nation's COVID-19 death toll at 0. – Nuclear Hoagie Mar 31 '20 at 19:22

Wikipedia maintains a list of countries and territories with no confirmed cases of COVID-19:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_pandemic_by_country_and_territory#Countries_and_territories_with_no_confirmed_cases (mirror on 2020-03-28)

It lists both UN member states and external territories.
