In a recently published 250-page report, the Hong Kong-based Deep Knowledge Group ranked Israel third in the world in its list of the safest countries during the coronavirus crisis.
Israel was evaluated in addition to 199 other countries and regions, using 11,000 data points based on economic factors, lockdown policies, and other health metrics, TPS reported.
International business magazine Forbes picked up the report this week amid an uptick of cases in many countries, including Israel.
Switzerland and Germany took the top two spots.
This report follows a previous Deep Knowledge Group publication ranking Israel as the safest country in the world during the pandemic.
At the start of the COVID-19 crisis, Israel sealed its borders and instituted curfews and lockdowns, prohibiting gatherings on religious and national holidays during which Israelis normally get together with friends and family.
