India at number 86 in Kovid-19 Response Index
The index has been prepared by the Lowy Institute, an international independent think tank based in Sydney. For this, countries were classified into broad categories based on region, political system, population size and economic development. Six different indices were measured, including corona virus positive cases, deaths per million population, and percentage of corona virus screening cases. Comparison data on publicly available and Kovid-19 responses were included in the index and averaged across the indices and each country was scored between 0–100.
New Zealand, Vietnam and Taiwan top 3 in 98 countries
Researchers ranked 0 score as the worst performance and 100 score as the most outstanding performance. New Zealand got the highest score of 94. 4, followed by Vietnam with 90.8, Taiwan with 86.4 and Thailand with 84.2. Brazil was given the lowest score of 4.3. Mexico, Colombia, Iran and the US were also placed among the lower five countries in terms of performance. India scored 24. 3 on the basis of performance in dealing with the corona virus epidemic.
The Lowy Institute excluded China from the list due to lack of data. According to the report, Britain is ranked 66th better than India and America is also in the list of five worst performing countries. The think tank said in a statement that developing countries were able to withstand the initial outbreak of the virus ‘surprisingly’ compared to developed countries, but rich countries were easily ‘suppressed’ to deal with the initial cases of epidemics.
