The UAE is among the top 3 countries in the fight against the pandemic in the Covid Resilience Ranking from Bloomberg

The UAE took the third position in the Covid Resilience Ranking from Bloomberg. The first and second places were given to Ireland and Spain, respectively, while the fourth position was taken by Denmark.

To compile the Covid Resilience Ranking, 12 data indicators are considered, which include containment of the virus spread, vaccination coverage, quality of healthcare, overall mortality rate, as well as progress in resuming travel. 53 countries around the world with leading economies that have shown the greatest resistance to social and economic impacts are included in this rating.

The lowest level of new coronavirus infection cases in the UAE over the past year was demonstrated in October. According to Bloomberg, the rating in the UAE on November 26, 2021, was only 74.6%. The country also shows one of the highest rates in the world in terms of vaccination among the population, currently at 97.3%.

Roberto Speranza, the Italian Minister of Health and current G20 president, praised the UAE’s exemplary efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic and its swiftness in implementing the most effective measures to combat COVID-19 globally, making it one of the lowest mortality and infection rates in the world. He added that this approach guarantees the health and safety of the country’s people and keeps the national economy functioning. The statement was made during an official visit by the Italian minister, accompanied by the Italian Ambassador to the UAE Nicola Lehner and their accompanying delegation to the Abu Dhabi Ministry of Health (DoH).

The extremely low mortality and infection rates in the UAE were noted. This recognition was made during the visit by the Italian minister and the accompanying delegation to the Abu Dhabi Department of Health (DoH). In addition, the Deep Knowledge Group (DKG), a London-based analytical consortium, reported that Abu Dhabi has been listed among the top 50 cities in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

It should also not be forgotten that in September 2021 Dubai was awarded another high-profile title – the UN awarded the emirate as the World’s Most Sustainable City and should be a role model for other megacities. His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council of the emirate said that the strategic vision of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai has been instrumental in shaping the sustainable development model and its successful implementation.

The UN Award demonstrates that Dubai is applying best practices and innovative approaches to reduce the risks of disasters and catastrophes both now and in the future.

As a reminder, in the spring of 2021, Dubai unveiled its Urban Master Plan 2040, under which the emirate is to become one of the world’s best cities to live in in 2040.
