    Covid-19 is the biggest public-health crisis in a generation and in less than a year has upended what we know about the world. Some advanced economies have struggled to mount an adequate response while others, among them small countries and developing markets, have unexpectedly triumphed and even eliminated the virus from within their communities. As we near the one-year anniversary of the emergence of this elusive and lethal coronavirus, millions of people are living largely normal lives, with businesses open and social events back on. Millions of others are hunkering down in new lockdowns and steeling themselves for a holiday season without social gatherings. To better understand that stark dichotomy, Bloomberg created the Covid Resilience Ranking. It scores 53 major economies on 10 metrics, from infection levels and fatalities to people’s mobility and access to frontrunner vaccines in each of the places. Economic growth, effective health-care and testing efficiency are also taken into account. The result is a resilience score which shows the best and worst places to be in the Covid era. While not a definitive verdict on an economy’s response, it provides a valuable snapshot of how the pandemic is playing out across the globe. And it’s a glimpse of a new world order with potentially enduring consequences. The main takeaways? Democracy is not a deciding factor, nor are cultural differences. There’s more than one strategy for success, and it doesn’t always include lockdowns.
