  • New Zealand takes top spot, closely followed by Vietnam, Taiwan and Thailand

Sri Lanka’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic is ranked 10th in the world, while New Zealand tops the rank, according to a research published by a leading Australian think tank yesterday. 

Sydney’s Lowy Institute assessed almost 100 countries upon six criteria, including confirmed cases, mortalities and testing metrics.


New Zealand takes the top spot, closely followed by Vietnam, Taiwan and Thailand ranked second, third and fourth respectively.


Languishing at the bottom is Brazil ranked 98, closely followed by Mexico, Colombia, Iran and the United States. China - where the virus first emerged - was not included in the rankings because of what the think tank described as a lack of publicly available data on testing.
