The Road to Recovery: Which Economies Reopen? #infographic

COVID-19 has brought the world to a halt — but, after months of uncertainty, the situation seems to be improving slowly for the better.

The current chart measures the extent to which 41 major economies are reopening, by plotting two metrics for each country: mobility and recovery rate COVID-19:

1. The Mobility Indices


It refers to increased employment actions, the subtraction of residential operation, measured as a percentage deviation from the baseline.

2.COVID-19 Recovery tariff


For a country the number of recovered cases is communicated as the percentage of the total cases.

Evidence for the first measure comes from Google's COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports, relying on the aggregated, anonymous history of individual locations. Remember that China does not appear in the picture because Google services are prohibited by the Government.


COVID-19 recovery rates are dependent on the CoronaTracker standards, using aggregate 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 recovered fully.

Italy, the onetime European epicenter of the crisis, is understandably wary of cases returning to alarming levels. As a result, it has chosen to keep its service to a minimum to try to increase the recovery rate by 65%, even as it slowly emerges from over 10 weeks of lockdown.
