Maldives has been listed among the 100 safest countries in the world to travel to in 2020. Maldives was ranked at 63rd in the list released by the Deep knowledge Group.
The Deep Knowledge Group first released a ranking of the safest countries in the world for COVID-19 back in June. Now the think tank has updated its data and methodology and re-issued a report on the safest countries and regions. The ranking is not just about how many infections there are right now or how many deaths COVID-19 has caused. Rather, it’s about an elaborated series of assessments on multiple medical, economic, and political factors. Added up, they increase or decrease a country’s score.
Deep Knowledge Group says they looked at more than 140 parameters and considered more than 35,000 data points, both up significantly from June’s report.
Since opening borders on 15th July 2020, Maldives has been amping up new measures to ensure the safety of the visitors. The latest of which has been making it a mandatory requirement to present a negative PCR test for all tourists arriving to Maldives from 10th September 2020.
