Antarctica is the only continent that has not been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

British researchers have to undergo a 14-day quarantine before they can even depart to the southern continent and there are contingency plans for what to do should supply lines to the various stations be disrupted.

Throughout the year there are more than 1,000 researchers from different countries on Antarctica. The closest hospital with an intensive care unit is thousands of miles away in Chile.
