COVID Resilience Ranking
Bloomberg’s COVID Resilience Ranking captures how effectively the world’s biggest 53 economies are responding to the pandemic on a monthly basis. In November, the Philippines and Indonesia were among the 11 of 53 countries that had administered less than 100 vaccine shots per 100 people. Bloomberg described this as a “key barrier to improving their scores.”
Virus containment, quality of healthcare, vaccination coverage, overall mortality, and progress toward reopening borders to tourists are some of the indicators Bloomberg uses to assess countries. The privately held financial, software, data, and media company headquartered in Manhattan, New York has been releasing these rankings for a little over a year.
Bloomberg said that developing nations, including the Philippines, are struggling to administer COVID-19 vaccines due to logistical issues. The United Arab Emirates topped Bloomberg’s COVID-19 Resilience Ranking. Saudi Arabia, Finland, Turkey, and Singapore round out the top five.
