Covid-19 Recovery: Countries soon to be fully controlling the Coronavirus

Written by Natasha

Every single country worldwide has been affected by the Covid-19 Coronavirus. However, not every country has been affected equally. Some countries have performed exceptionally well, some are still affected heavily and then we have the countries that are starting to show improvements; the Covid-19 Recovering Countries. Let’s take a look at the Covid-19 Data Analytics to identify which countries are on the road to controlling the Covid-19 towards a full recovery status. These countries are particularly interesting because control of the Coronavirus means the economies such as airlines bounce back into operations.

Another alternative can be that Coronavirus controlling countries slip into a second wave of the Coronavirus. However, in this article, we focus on the positive outlook and believe the countries will control the Coronavirus till their full recovery.

We’ve identified the Best Performing Covid-19 Countries and the Worst Affected Covid-19 countries. In this article, we utilize Time Series Data Analysis and take a look at the Covid-19 data analytics to identify which countries are currently closing the finish line of having completely controlled and eradicated the Coronavirus from the country.

This is done by breaking down the analysis by each major region of the world; Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania. Under each region category, you will find listed the top Covid-19 controlling countries in that specific region.

Country Coronvavirus control performance is rated on an “Activepercent” scale of 0 to 100; a rating of 0 indicating the location being completely free of the virus and a rating of 100 – the highest possible score in terms of impact severity, indicating that the location is critically affected by the Coronavirus without being in control.

Active percent = (Infected-Recovered-Death)/(Maximum Infections of the country ever)

We hope you find this information useful.

Activecases – Number of currently active cases

Recovered – Number of Recovered cases

Deaths – Number of Covid-19 related deaths



Djibouti has managed to control the Coronavirus from causing further damage by enacting essential measures of proactive testing, treatments and isolation with contact tracing of positive tested individuals. Just this month, the country further extended its testing measure by launching a mass screening campaign of an additional 50,000 people.

As visible through the Covid-19 Data Analytics graph, the country’s progress has not been the most consistent. However, the Activepercent sum of the country as of 21st June 2020 stands at 28 points – making it a Covid-19 recovering country, being more and more in control of the Coronavirus.

A total of 45 Covid-19 related deaths have occurred up to date. The Recovered case numbers have climbed up to 3859 cases and Activecase numbers have dropped to 678 cases within the shown timeframe. Continuing on this trajectory will lead the country to a full recovery status sooner than expected.



Earlier this month on the 9th of June, Cuba officially declared Covid-19 as under control within the country. Slower to react to the pandemic at first, Cuba stepped up its game just in time to prevent catastrophe by closing its borders towards the end of March. Presently, Cuba implements some of the sternest Covid-19 containment measure such as having instructed tens of thousands of doctors, nurses and even medical students to “actively screen” all homes in the country – every single day to identify any and all Covid-19 cases.

The current Activecase number is 124 cases, with 2103 Recovered cases and 85 Deaths.


After three months of lockdown measure, the Bahamas is now seeing positive strides heading towards a full recovery from the Coronavirus. Given the improving progress, the country plans to reopen its borders to foreign travellers on the 1st of July 2020 in an attempt to relaunch its tourism. However, the country remains on a 9pm-5am curfew and all arriving passengers will be required to undergo a real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction diagnostic test from an accredited lab to gain entry into the country.

South Korea

Not so long ago, South Korea held the title of the world’s second-worst Covid-19 outbreak. However, the once virus hotspot is now fast approaching full recovery status.

Unlike many other Covid-19 recovering countries, South Korea’s approach to containing the virus was slightly different. The country at no point imposed any curfews – instead, it focused on a strategy heavily dependent on technology-reliant testing and heavy contact tracing. The strategy paid off and is now a model for countries hoping to lift or avoid further lock-down measures.
