Timeline and information

21 March: So far, no cases of the coronavirus have been reported from Lesotho. It's unlikely this number is true, as there aren't many options for testing on the virus in the small African nation.

Surrounded by South Africa, a country heavily affected by the virus, it's assumed there are active cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Lesotho.
