On 7 January 2020, the People’s Republic of China identified the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV or COVID-19) from a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown etiology in Wuhan City, Hubei Province. Undocumented cases of the pneumonia-like illness are believed to have facilitated the rapid spread of the novel virus throughout China and later identified in several countries around the world linked to China through travel history or close contact with a person with travel history to China. Due to the rapid spread and severity of the impacts, WHO declared the outbreak of a pandemic on 11 March 2020. As scientists around the world endeavor to learn more about the novel virus and its transmission, Governments have taken unprecedented measures to contain its evolving spread. As of 6 April 2020, the WHO recorded a total of 1,210,956 confirmed cases and 67,594 total deaths globally
Tokelau is a small Pacific country with a total land area of only 12 square kilometers, and a population of 1,647 people (2019 estimate). The country is a group of three atolls (Atafu, Fakaofo, Nukunonu) in the South Pacific Ocean, about one-half of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand. The country's small population is quite evenly distributed amongst the three atolls. Given Tokelau’s small and dispersed population, and its geographic isolation the COVID-19 poses unprecedented health, social, and economic consequences if not prevented nor contained.
Although Tokelau has not recorded a single case of the coronavirus, the Tokelau Government has imposed a stringent lockdown and declared drastic border control as precautionary efforts towards prevention and containment of COVID19. These measures are expected to have negative effects on the economic and social development of Tokelau.
