COVID-19: Saudi Arabia safest nation among G20 countries
Dubai: Saudi Arabia ranked first among G20 nations as the safest country, outperforming the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC), local media reported.
The ranking was based on five global security indicators included in the Global Competitiveness Report 2019 and the Sustainable Development Goals Index 2020.
Earlier last week, Saudi Arabia has been ranked as the sixth safest country to travel to based on coronavirus criteria, according to Wego Travel’s COVID-19 Country Risk Assessment.
The travel company Wego compiles a frequently updated coronavirus risk assessment chart that ranks countries based on their safety of travel.
The list applies the European Union’s COVID-19 safety criteria to data taken from Our World in Data and ranks countries from “Safe” to “High Cases & Positivity.”
