The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing pandemic[1] of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2).[2] The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.[3] The World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020, and a pandemic on 11 March 2020. As of 28 November 2021, more than 261 million cases and 5.19 million deaths have been confirmed, making the pandemic one of the deadliest in history.[4][5]

Following the advice and recommendations of the WHO as well as macronational and local governments, various micronations have made responses and courses of action to the pandemic,[6][7][8][9] commonly through enforcing WHO advise, increased surveillance and caution, limiting travel, self-isolation and quarantine, and cancellations of social, sporting, political and religious events. As of 23 May 2020, there have been 17 confirmed cases of COVID-19 having been reported in micronations, affecting five micronations, resulting in 1 death and 12 recoveries; there are a further 2 suspected cases which have been officially reported. The first case of coronavirus in a micronation was confirmed in the Principality of Montescano on 10 March 2020, which is also the first and so far only micronation to report a death of COVID-19 on 9 April. A number of other cases of coronavirus in micronational claimants have been reported,[citation needed] however, none of which have been recognised citizens.[citation needed] A number of citizens of micronations have also had COVID-19 cases. There have also been claimed cases that have been unverified or disputed.

The pandemic, leaving people with lots of free time, has been responsible for a surge in activity within the MicroWiki Sector. A number of retired micronationalists have returned to service, micronations have gone back into activity or become more active, and participation in elections and referendums, community censuses, surveys, and other events have increased.[6] Multiple micronational news media have reported this as a 'positive' to the ongoing pandemic.

A number of micronations declared states of caution and emergencies; Adammia declared a state of emergency on 16 March, which was the first ever in Adammia's seven-year history. The first media response to COVID-19 was from the Government of Gradonia on 23 January, when the government declared a state of caution. This followed the news of a suspect case in Brazos County, Texas. The Mahuset National Convention of 2019 created a task force monitoring the spread of coronavirus. The only school in New Eiffel was closed on 13 March. Essexia starting holding parliament sessions online via Skype. The Grand Unified Micronational placed all physical summits on hold until further notice.

Lonely Planet published an article about responses from micronations to COVID-19 on April 2020,[10] and Newsweek published an article on responses from micronations in the United States on 10 April.[11]

The decline of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2022 and 2023 has led to a significant decline in activity within the micronational community, due to the lifting of many macronational lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, being dubbed by some as the 'COVID Bust'.
