The virus hit some countries like America, Spain, and Italy so badly that some of the nations recorded over 2,000 deaths in a day.

Despite having high mortality in some countries like the aforementioned ones, some other countries have, fortunately, recorded little deaths.

The President of Tanzania, John Magufuli, on Monday, June 8, 2020, declared his country COVID-19-free. According to the president, the cases were no longer going up because of the grace of God.

President Magufuli also added that the disease had been exaggerated by the various stakeholders

"I want to thank Tanzanians of all faiths. We have been praying and fasting for God to save us from the pandemic that has afflicted our country and the world. But God has answered us", he is quoted to have said.

2. New Zealand

A similar thing has happened in New Zealand where Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, declared the country coronavirus free.

According to reports, the country has reported no new COVID-19 cases for more than two weeks.

Due to this, New Zealand has lifted almost all of its restrictions as social distancing is not required and there are no limits on public gatherings.

3. Vietnam

Even though Vietnam is not totally coronavirus-free, it is amazing how the country has been able to keep its confirmed cases below 500 with absolutely no recorded deaths.

Several people have praised Vietnam's response, comparing it to the success in 2003 when it became the first country to be cleared of the SARS outbreak.
