The Road to Recovery: Which Economies Reopen? #infographic

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

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

1.The Mobility Index

It applies to increased employment behavior, residential activity subtraction, measured as a percentage deviation from the baseline.

Tariff on Recovery 2.COVID-19


For a country it communicates the number of recovered cases as the percentage of the total cases.
Evidence for the first measure comes from Google's COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports, which rely on the aggregated, anonymous history of locations of individuals. Notice that China does not appear in the image, as the government bannes Google services.


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

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

Italy, the onetime epicenter of the crisis in Europe, is understandably wary about cases going back to dangerous levels. As a result, it has opted to keep its service to a minimum in order to seek to increase the pace of recovery by 65%, even as it slowly emerges from more than 10 weeks of lockdown.
