Winter and the long-anticipated rollout of coronavirus vaccines triggered some surprising shifts in Bloomberg’s Covid Resilience Ranking, a measure of the best places to be in the Covid-19 era.
Each month, we crunch the numbers to get a snapshot of where the virus is being handled the most effectively with the least social and economic disruption.
New Zealand-with its closed borders, vaccine deals and elimination of the virus in the community-remains No. 1 in December, with Taiwan edging into second place as the onset of cold weather challenges previously top-ranked places like Japan and South Korea.
The winter wave’s ferocity is testing their approach of trying to tame Covid-19 without locking down. Japan-No. 2 in November-Korea and Sweden have all fallen in the Ranking as people’s migration indoors fuels the virus’s spread, putting pressure on their long-standing strategies of suppressing the pathogen with minimal disruption. Lauded for its early focus on testing and cutting-edge contact tracing, Korea is trying to avoid imposing its toughest curbs yet.
