Vietnam 13th in global Covid-19 recovery ranking

(VOVWORLD) - Vietnam has done better than many major economies in recovering from Covid-19, ranking 13th among 184 countries and territories. 

In Asia, Vietnam ranked fifth after Thailand, Chinese Taiwan, South Korea and Malaysia, according to the Global Covid-19 Index updated Tuesday by Malaysia-based consulting firm Pemandu Associates in collaboration with Malaysia’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Sunway Group.

The index measured global economies on how well they coped with the Covid-19 crisis based on recovery and severity ratings.

Vietnam scored 73.3 points, with 0 the worst and 100 the best in terms of recovery rating measured by how a country was performing on its path to recovery in comparison to other countries. This, in turn, is based on active cases per population, recoveries per confirmed case, tests conducted per confirmed cases and tests conducted per population.
