 1. Taiwan (675 cases, 7 deaths) Before the outbreak of COVID-19 in other countries, Taiwan was testing and quarantining travellers from Wuhan, China. 

The country deployed a containment strategy that has been proven to be one of the most successful in the world. Taiwan used technology to trace suspected cases, and is still doing so today. If a citizen tests positive, the government will provide them with a quarantine hotel and cab. 

2. New Zealand (2,059 cases, 25 deaths) New Zealand has proven to the world that the lives of its citizens are important as the country wasted no time in preventing the spread of COVID-19. This is the reason why New Zealand set up the National Health Coordination Centre (NHCC) to respond to the outbreak. New Zealand also imposed restrictions to and from other countries as early as February 2020. 

3. Iceland (5,392 cases, 26 deaths) Early response to the pandemic helped Iceland to keep down the number of cases recorded. The government built a team of contact tracers. The team ensures that people who may have had contact with an infected person are trace.
