Nikkei COVID-19 Recovery Index ranks more than 120 countries/regions on infection management, vaccine rollouts and social mobility at the end of each month.
A high ranking indicates that a country/region is closer to recovery with its low numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases, better vaccination rates and/or less stringent social distancing measures.
