Malaysia has earned recognition from all around the world in the year 2020 when the country astounded other nations with their incredible efforts to combat Covid-19 outbreaks. In March 2020, Malaysia was reported to have three times the number of Covid-19 cases as other countries in Southeast Asia, making it one of the safest countries in the world.
After almost two years of fighting the pandemic, our Health Director-General, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, recently stated on Facebook that Malaysia has been placed 13th in the current Nikkei Covid-19 Recovery Index.
The Nikkei Covid-19 Recovery Index, according to Dr Hisham, revealed a difference between Asia and the West, with several nations reporting a rapid increase in Omicron infections, reported by the sun daily.
Malaysia received a total index score of 66.5. This chart is topped by Bahrain with an index score of 82.0 followed by Chile and Taiwan, 76.5 and 75.5 respectively for December 31st 2021.
120 countries or regions have been evaluated on the count on infection management, vaccine rollouts and social mobility.
According to Nikkei Covid-19 Recovery Index, with fewer confirmed Covid-19 cases, higher vaccination rates, and fewer social distancing measures, a country or territory with a higher rating is closer to recovery.
Malaysia was also placed sixth on the Global Covid Index (GCI), which was produced with assistance from a number of international organisations, including the World Health Organization (WHO)
Malaysia was placed No. 6 on the GCI, with a recovery rating of five and a recovery index of 78.74. With a recovery score of 82.88, Singapore was placed first, followed by South Korea (82.71) and Taiwan (80.49), all of which had the same recovery grade of five.
