Beyond the Headlines: places the coronavirus has not reached

A closer look at the few spots on Earth seemingly untouched by the Covid-19 pandemic

From island paradises to mountainous kingdoms, a few countries and territories sprinkled around the world have somehow remained free of Covid-19.

Or have they?

This week, we talk to Martin McKee, a professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and David Watchorn, manager at Extra Divers Christmas Island. We also speak to Emmanuel Samoglou, a journalist and former multimedia editor at The National, about visiting the Cook Islands in the Pacific when borders started to close. Hosted by Willy Lowry.
