China falls to 32nd place in COVID-19 recovery index

According to a report by the website NikkeaAsia.com, China’s fall on this index started at the beginning of this year. In March, it dropped 11 places. Now China is at number 32 in the COVID-19 recovery index.

This time there has been deep concern about China’s reputation for controlling the corona epidemic. China’s status has dropped 30 places in the latest COVID-19 recovery index. Despite the zero covid policy, China could not stop the infection of this epidemic recently. Currently, the country’s most populous city, Shanghai, is under lockdown.

China is now at number 32 in the COVID-19 recovery index. The preparation of this index started in July last year. Since then, China’s status has always been in the top 10. But now it has come down drastically. Experts say that China handled all the earlier variants and strains very well. But it failed to stop the infection of the Omicron variant.

The COVID-19 Recovery Index is prepared to take into account the status of infection management, vaccination status, and social mobility of the countries during the pandemic. Being on a high rank means that the country concerned is successful in keeping the infection under control. According to a report by the website NikkeaAsia.com, China’s fall on this index started at the beginning of this year. In March, it dropped 11 places. The reason for this was an increase in the cases of infection in different parts of the country throughout the month.

The worst condition of infection is currently in Shanghai. There, people’s Kovid investigation has been done door-to-door. Despite this, there has been an increase in new cases. More than 21 thousand new cases were reported on Thursday. At present, 87 percent of the total corona infected patients in China are in Shanghai only. However, out of these, the number of asymptomatic (in which no symptoms are shown) cases is considerable.

The latest wave of the corona epidemic is having a bad effect on China’s economy. Shanghai is called the financial capital of China. There all work is at a standstill. Takashi Kasai, the director of the West Pacific region of the World Health Organization, said in a video news conference this week that China’s health system could collapse even though a small part of the population in China is infected due to its large population.

In the latest index, China has come at number 12 in terms of vaccination. Vaccination rates have been high in China, but low in some areas. Also, there has been less vaccination among people of certain age groups. For example, only 50 percent of people who are 80 years of age or older have been vaccinated. According to experts, the uneven situation of vaccination has now become a big challenge for China.

Hong Kong’s position has also fallen in the latest index. He has slipped from 109th to 114th. Thailand is also among the countries that have declined in Southeast Asia. Now it has slipped 28 places to 113th position. While Cambodia is at number two and Taiwan is at number five.
