Argentina is the second worst place to live during the pandemic in a ranking of 53 countries

studied in different statistical variables.

This stems from a detailed macroeconomic and health analysis developed by the international agency

Bloomberg.

The analysis, on the one hand, calls into question the strategies and preparation of the world's most advanced economies such as the

United States and Great Britain.

And, on the other hand, it points out that Latin American countries - the region most devastated by the covid - occupy the bottom half of the ranking as a result of conditions of

poverty and overcrowding.

"Bloomberg analyzed the numbers to determine the best places to be in the era of the coronavirus:

Where has the virus been most effectively managed with the fewest disruptions to business and society?"

, says the report of the consultant.

In this way, an analysis of

macroeconomic statistics

was carried out

to determine in which nations the virus has been managed more effectively so as not to interrupt economic activity.

On the overall list, the worst country was Mexico and the best New Zealand.

According to the text, this ranking called

"

The Covid Resilience Ranking" scores economies of more than 200 billion dollars in 10 key metrics.

What variables does Bloomberg take to make this ranking?

"From the growth in coronavirus cases to the overall death rate,

plus the testing capabilities and

vaccine supply

agreements

places have forged."

Also - he adds - the capacity of the local health care system and the impact of restrictions related to the covid, such as

freedom of movement, are taken into account.

In this list, Argentina occupies position 52

, that is, the second country most affected by the pandemic based on these 10 variables.

This Tuesday, the Argentine Ministry of Health reported 7,164 new cases of coronavirus and 311 deaths.

With these records, there are 1,381,795 positives in the country.

At the moment the number of deceased people in Argentina is 37,432.

In the world ranking of John Hopkins University, Argentina ranks

tenth in number of deaths.

Days ago, in a television interview, Alberto Fernández assured that “if one looks at the fatality rate, we are below the Latin American average.” Argentine officials have pointed out that

the health system did not collapse in the country as a result of the pandemic . 

At the top of Bloomberg's list is New Zealand, the best country 

to handle the pandemic so far. "The small island nation closed its borders on March 26 before a single Covid-related death occurred, despite the strong dependence of the economy on tourism ", highlights the report.

He adds: "They invested resources in testing, contact tracing and a

centralized quarantine strategy

to end local transmission. New Zealanders basically live in a world without Covid. The nation has seen only a handful of infections in the community in recent months. ".

New Zealand is followed by

Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Finland, Norway, Australia, China, Denmark and Vietman. 

"Latin America is the region most devastated by the pandemic,

" the report adds. "

 It occupies the bottom half of the ranking

, with Mexico in the worst of 53. The latest rate of positive tests available in the country is a whopping 62%, suggesting that undetected infection is widespread. "

Brazil,

home to the world's third largest outbreak after India, ranks 37th.

The analysis concludes: "

In Latin America, a large part of the population lives in crowded conditions

where social distancing is difficult. The high proportion of people who depend on informal work and daily wages means that few are willing to stay at home."

Bloomberg, finally, considers that this ranking

"is not a final verdict, nor could it be with imperfections in the virus data

and the accelerated pace of this crisis, which has seen subsequent waves that have confused places that handled things well the first time. time".
