Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “UAE Tops Covid Resilience Ranking” – below is their description.

After dominating the top rungs of Bloomberg’s Covid Resilience Ranking for months, Europe has largely been dethroned with the United Arab Emirates—one of the most-consistent performers since the Ranking’s inception a year ago—becoming our new No. 1. Daily cases have stayed below a hundred a day since mid-October in the UAE, deaths are rare and it’s one of the most vaccinated places in the world with over 200 doses per 100 people.

November’s No.1, the UAE has basically normalized back to pre-pandemic life: Property sales are at a decade high in its largest city of Dubai, restaurants are full, and the Expo—which is running until March—has attracted two million visitors since it started in October.

European nations account for eight of the biggest drops this month, led by Austria which plummets 31 places after it became the first on the continent to re-enter a national lockdown. Ireland, the top performer in September and October, slid three spots to No. 4.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
