Tuesday, June 23, 2020 — In a recent article published by, the OECS Member State of Dominica was singled out as the top performer in Covid-19 recoveries for the Americas, with Barbados coming in second and Uruguay in third position.

Using Time Series Data Analysis, the online journal looked at Covid-19 data analytics to identify which countries are close to a full recovery.

This was done by breaking down the analysis by each major region of the world; Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania. Under each region category you will find listed the top 3 Covid-19 recovery countries with the best performance.

Country performance is rated on an Activepercent sum scale of 0 to 100; a rating of 0 indicating the location being completely free of the virus and a rating of 100, the highest possible score in terms of impact severity indicating that the location is critically affected by the virus.

The online journal noted that, although a second wave of the Covid-19 Coronavirus is a possibility, for now the 15 highlighted countries are showing the best results and hope.
