New Zealand has been ranked second in a list of the safest countries during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The study was produced by Forbes – which is a large media company. They ranked Germany on the top spot, with South Korea in third, followed by Switzerland and Japan.

The United Kingdom came in at 31, Sweden 49 and the United States 55.

The study focussed on 250 countries and measured the efficiency of their quarantine systems, health readiness, and management and detection of the virus.

It also compared regional resilience, emergency preparedness and how efficiently the government manages risks.

This is the second time Forbes has completed the study. In their June study, they named Switzerland as the safest country, with New Zealand at number nine.

The latest report says Somaliland, South Sudan, Afghanistan, and Mali are the most dangerous nations.
