Identifying the top best performing Covid-19 recovery countries

It has been roughly 7 months since the Covid-19 Coronavirus first reared its head. The virus has since then made its way around the globe, leaving its mark in every country. Ultimately, the hard part will follow when the northern hemisphere will enter the Covid-19 winter with plenty of social distancing challenges.

However, not every country has been affected equally and the current status and progress of each country also vary from one another, in some instances to great extent.

We utilize Time Series Data Analysis and take a look at the Covid-19 data analytics to identify which countries are close to a full recovery.

We do this 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 3 Covid-19 recovery countries with the best performance.

Country performance is rated on an Activepercent sum 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 virus.
