The Road to Recovery: Which Economies Reopen? #infographic

COVID-19 has brought the world to a halt — but it appears, after months of confusion, that the situation is gradually changing for the better.

Today's chart measures to what extent 41 major economies are reopening, by plotting two metrics for each country: mobility rate and recovery rate for COVID-19:

1.Index of mobility
It applies to the increase in occupational behavior, the subtraction of residential activity , measured as a percentage deviation from baseline.

2.COVID-19 Tariff On Recovery
For a nation the number of recovered cases is expressed as the percentage of the total cases.
Evidence for the first measure comes from Google's COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports, which rely on individuals' aggregated, anonymous location history. Note that China does not appear in the graphic since Google services are banned by the government.

COVID-19 recovery rates depend on CoronaTracker standards, using aggregated data from various global and government sources such as WHO and CDC.

Countries playing it safely in this quadrant and holding on to reopening their markets until the population has completely recovered.

Italy, the onetime epicenter of Europe's crisis, is understandably cautious of cases rising back to critical levels. As a result, it has opted to keep its operation to a minimum to try to raise the recovery rate of 65 per cent, even as it slowly emerges from more than 10 weeks of lockdown.
