A large study of the safest countries in the world for coronavirus, was recently conducted by Deep Knowledge Group and published by Forbes Magazine.

According to the massive 250-page report, Switzerland is the safest country, while South Sudan is the most dangerous nation right now for COVID-19.

Greece has been placed relatively high, ranking 34th on the list of safest countries.

The study was based on 130 quantitative and qualitative parameters and over 11,400 data points in categories like quarantine efficiency, monitoring and detection, health readiness, and government efficiency.

The United States ranks 58th, just behind Romania and two places ahead of Russia.

At the beginning of the pandemic, countries that could react quickly to crises and had high levels of emergency preparedness ranked highest. Now countries with resilient economies are ranking higher.

“Switzerland and Germany achieve the #1 and #2 positions in this new special case study specifically because of their economy’s resilience, and due to the careful ways in which they are attempting to relax lockdown and economic freezing mandates in a fact and science-based manner, without sacrificing public health and safety,” the study says.

The highest-risk regions right now, according to the report are Sub-Saharan Africa and South America, as well as some countries in the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
