COVID-19 performance ranking

The first of its kind, the COVID-19 “performance index” was released recently.

The index was released by the Lowy Institute, an Australian think tank, which sought to assess the impact of geography, political systems and economic development in assessing outcomes.

Top performers

New Zealand and Vietnam were ranked the best performing countries in their response to the pandemic.

Taiwan, Thailand and Cyprus were in the top five.

Worst performer

India ranked 86 out of 98 countries,

U.S. stood at 94

Brazil at 98

Sri Lanka was the best faring nation in South Asia, ranking 10

While the Maldives was at 25, Pakistan at 69, Nepal at 70, and Bangladesh at 84.

Indicators of the index

The index was based on six different indicators:

Confirmed cases

Confirmed deaths

Confirmed cases per million people

Confirmed deaths per million people

Confirmed cases as a proportion of tests

Tests per thousand people

Overall Conclusion

Assessing regional responses, the institute found that although the outbreak began in China, the Asia-Pacific region fared the best, while Europe and the U.S. were initially overwhelmed.

Europe, however, “registered the greatest improvement over time of any region” before succumbing to a second wave, which it attributed to more open borders.
