In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. This single announcement has changed our lives drastically. For our safety, we were advised to stay inside our homes, which makes perfect sense as the virus is highly contagious. Just a few minutes of contact with an infected person or a carrier could expose a person to the virus. A factor why COVID-19 keeps spreading is that most of the time, the virus is transmitted unknowingly. A person could be asymptomatic and yet highly contagious.

On their website, the USA Department of State advises against travel to a long list of foreign countries. American citizens are either totally barred, restricted, or conditionally allowed to travel to a foreign country, depending on the situation in the country they wish to visit.

COVID-19 cases in the United States have reached about 5.74M cases already. If you Google “COVID-19 cases in the USA,” the first thing that turns up in the results is a tabulated summary. This summary has an interactive filter, enabling a drop-down search so you can check any area of choice. I noticed that the tally of cases was done from the highest count. So, I wondered, what is the lowest number for an American territory? As I scrolled to the bottom of the list, the numbers decreased from six digits to three. Then, for the second to the last entry, there were only 54 cases. I thought, “Hey, that’s a good number!” That is until I saw the last entry. It says, “American Samoa: ZERO cases, ZERO deaths!” I was so impressed and amazed at the same time!
