Mexico and the United States appear on a list that ranks nations that have the worst coronavirus record.

Canada is on another list, from the same research firm, ranking the best countries.

The study comes from Deep Knowledge Group, a Hong Kong venture capital group specializing in medicines.

According to DKG’s research, released last week, Canada sits in 13th place, behind Austria (12th) and Switzerland (11th) but ahead of several G7 countries, including the United States, which is in 70th spot.

Israel is the world’s safest country, followed by Germany, South Korea, Australia, China, New Zealand, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong, DKG data indicate.

The list of countries with the highest COVID-19 risk ranking starts with Italy followed by the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Sweden, Iran, Ecuador, the Philippines and Romania. Other prominent members of the high risk group include Russia (12th), Mexico (14th) and India (15th).

Deep Knowledge Group, a consortium of commercial and non-profit organizations, assessed more than 150 countries along 78 parameters, including the number of confirmed cases and deaths, geography and demographics, hospital capacity, medical expertise and emergency planning.
