One small city in the United States is successful in the fight with the coronavirus outbreak, mostly because of its geographic position. That city is Point Roberts, which is placed on a small peninsula close to Vancouver.

This is the safest place from the pandemic in the whole United States, mostly because it is isolated geographically, and it is land connected only with Canada. Since the border with Canada is closed, this city is now like an island in quarantine, which helped its 1300 citizens to keep away from every possibility to get infected with COVID-19.

This small city in Washington is probably the safest place in the whole country, and the main reason for that is the small number of tourists, with an average of few thousands of people who were coming here on weekends before the outbreak, which is now less than a hundred.

When we look at it from an economic perspective, it is devastative for the community, but the situation is the same globally. However, the fact that fewer people are coming here made this place more protected from the pandemic.

This place represents a rare place that is not struggling with the coronavirus in the United States, where there are already near 800,000 people infected, and more than 40,000 casualties reported.
