Bangladesh was ranked 13th in the world in March. Pakistan was placed 23rd in the area, while Sri Lanka, which is now experiencing an economic crisis, was ranked 31st. India and Haiti tied for 70th place in the index with 62.5 points each, while Qatar and the United Arab Emirates took first place with 87 points.
For the past few months, the number of Covid-19 infections in Bangladesh has been declining. The virus claimed no lives in the country in the 16 days leading up to Friday. According to health officials, 75.46 per cent of the population has had at least one vaccine injection, with 68.19 per cent having been fully immunized.
The index evaluates countries and regions on infection control, vaccine rollouts, and socioeconomic mobility at the conclusion of each month. The higher the score, the closer a location is to recovery, as seen by reduced infection and death rates, better immunization coverage, and fewer limitations on movement. Nikkei, Japan’s major business publication group, which comprises the Nikkei, Nikkei Asia, and the Financial Times (of London), maintains the index.
