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 then 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 varies 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.

  2. Rana says:

    Have you seen the numbers in Jordan?

    • Tim says:

      Hi Rana. Jordan is still nearly at the peak of the infected an non cured people (active percent). However, the recovered cases are going up. What we see in other countries, this seems to be the precondition to gain full control of the Coronavirus.
      What is your interpretation for Jordans graph?
      Jordans Coronavirus active cases are nearly at their maximum. The recoveries seem to go up what is a first indicator of Coronavirus control and then, ultimately, recovery.

  3. Kerra says:

    What about Namibia?

    • Tim says:

      We are considering it in a future report to have a complete ranking.
      Namibia is currently rising in the active percent but one can interpret other numbers also as first control. For us it is unclear in which direction it heads at this moment. What is your interpretation? Namibia Covid19/Coronavirus cases are on the rise

  4. Spliffy Leaks says:

    Where does Antigua and Barbuda rank in your survey?

    • Tim says:

      Antigua and Barbudarank quite well.
      Antigua and Barbuda - Active Coronavirus cases and the recovery. We can see a control of the Coronavirus what leads likely to full recovery, soon.
      The key challenge is always which countries you pick.
      We are considering to publish a complete list of all – with the different indicators. What are your thoughts of this?

  5. Myrna Gibson says:

    So proud to be a Barbadian.

  6. Cherrie says:

    Yeahhhh for little Barbados!

  7. Nicole says:

    Where does the Caribbean of Grenada rank?

  8. Morene Barker-Morris says:

    Ratings seem to be directly linked to the overall IQ of the leader,. As a native Barbadian I have been very comfortable, peaceful and calm being here during this time. Thank God. For Bim and our Prime Minister.

    • Ejam says:

      We’re a n island – nation that is well well administered. . May we continue to maintain this progress.

    • NW says:

      I am a Barbadian and I belive that comment is a highly arrogant comment to make. We certainly are prone to having a lot more pride than industry. There is no mention of IQ anywhere and it is fallacious to assume that because a country may be struggling, it’s leader is unintelligent.

  9. Nicodimus says:

    Great job Dominica. You guys will be amazed of what natural herbs will do! 🇩🇲🇩🇲🇩🇲

  10. Nirmala De Soyza says:

    Why is Sri Lanka not on this list?

  11. R. Sullivan says:

    Why is St. Lucia not on the list?

    • Tim says:

      Thank you Sullivan. St. Lucia Coronavirus recovery is not in the list out of Covid19 recovery, because we credited some other factors in the Coronavirus recovery scoring. We herad the feedback and will come up with a complete transparent recovery scoring list, soon.
      Till then, we add the of graph St. Lucia Coronavirus recovery here:

    This Report is Fictitious Trinidad & Tobago is rated by other Surveys as Either #1 or # in the world in their Handling of Coronavirus
    Please Check your Facts and make the Necessary amendment

    • Tim says:

      Dear Andrew, that is a valid point. We considered also other factors like the population and so on. Out of the feedback here, we learn that we should do a transparent scoring of all countries. Please give us a few days to come up with that. We’d really appreciate then feedback about our scoring once the list is out.

  13. Michelle Leatham says:

    Great job Dominica, keep up the good work. Am so proud of you guy’s.

  14. Andrea Kelsick says:

    What about Trinidad and Tobago?

    • Mary Joseph says:

      God is watching over this nature isle of the Caribbean, Dominica. We are a praying people. When we join our Faiths together, miracles happen. Keep up the good work, fellow Dominicans. Maintain your social distancing, and wear your masks. God bless you all.

    • Tim says:

      Dear Andrea Kelsick. Please check the reply to the comment before where we discuss that Trinidad and Tobago have a quite impressive recovery. There you can also find the recovery graph of Trinidad and Tobago.

  15. Patrick says:

    Antigua positives jumped within the last couple of days. 39 positives causung the gov’t to institute mandatory testing on entering the island for all without exception, and a compulsory 14 day quarantine.
    ALL caricom/ caribbean countries should have one consensus regarding opening their borders instead of individual protocols. Reason being that ALL the islands are fully dependant on tourism.

  16. meow says:

    You forgot Malaysia

  17. John Fryer says:

    Myanmar has at 27 June 2020 less than ten lives lost and less than 500 cases for a population of over 50 million.

  18. John Fryer says:

    Croatia is on your list of good results but looks like one of the first countries to begin another new wave of cases.

  19. John Fryer says:

    South Korea was one of the first to suffer but less than 300 dead, less than 15 000 cases for a population of more than 50 million

  20. John Fryer says:

    China though possibly the villain of the piece have less than 5 000 deaths for a population of over 1 billion.

  21. John Fryer says:

    Finally Taiwan less than 10 dead, less than 500 cases for a population of over 20 million.

  22. John Fryer says:

    Countries doing well tend to use hydroxychloroquine and / or are islands and so will have high Vitamin D levels and eat fish with large amounts of the same Vitamin D.

    Also it is very much a city illness with big cities doing badly compared to country dwellers and those in individual houses where social distancing is easier. High rise flats, prisons and homes for lots of people also do less well?

  23. Curious says:

    St. Vincent and the Grenadines had under 20 cases, no deaths and presently no active cases – Im not too sure how this rating was done.

  24. Umair says:

    Where does Turkey rank?

  25. Hakim says:

    As always, Malaysia gets overshadowed by its neighbours like Thailand and Cambodia. We have a total 8640 cases and 121 deaths, and today we reached the ultimate low of 1 new daily case which was imported from overseas; 8375 cases or 97% of cases have recovered and cases that are active right now is 144 cases and declining.

  26. Padmaram says:

    Qatar is good will put name

  27. Snow says:

    What about Saint Lucia ?

  28. Olie says:

    How about malaysia?

  29. Reality says:

    Why is St Lucia not in the list. They did a much better job than Barbados.

  30. Boh says:

    you forgot about Brunei Darussalam

  31. Vernelda Alexander says:

    Where does the USVI ranks

    • Tim says:

      I think there is not enough data to really include USVI properly in the ranking.

  32. Your comments are wrong analysis are biased. The most successful country to contain COVID 19 is Sri Lanka. The president and his wing did a tremendous job and the best in contact tracing. Not only economy schools and all active except Airport are open. Only cases in Sri Lanka now are imported.

  33. Bipin Dahal says:

    What about Nepal?

  34. Dimuthu Munasinghe says:

    How about Sri Lanka..?

  35. upul madhawa devanarayana says:

    Sri Lanka has always been far ahead of Japan but you show Japan as the third best country in Asia, how unfair is that

  36. Muzaffar says:

    What about Pakistan

  37. U2Bomer says:

    How is China not on this list? What a joke.
