UK Rates ‘Worst’ National COVID-19 Response, Vietnam Best

The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has affected countries varies vastly, connected in part to the respective government's handling of the situation. As Statista's Martin Armstrong shows below, these national responses can be worlds apart - both in terms of efficacy and as survey data from YouGov shows, the subsequent level of public approval, too.

In the UK, where the government's response has been heavily criticised, the net approval rating (calculated by subtracting 'handling badly' from 'handling well' responses) is the joint-lowest of all countries surveyed.

Also with a rating of -15 is Mexico, where President López Obrador originally downplayed the severity of the pandemic and is now struggling to find the right balance between prioritizing public health and protecting the economy.

At the other end of the scale, Vietnam has so far recorded just over 300 cases and zero deaths.

In contrast to Mexico, Vietnam's 'overreaction' to the crisis is thought to be the reason for the astonishing results achieved so far.

To compare to the countries at the bottom of the ranking, Our World in Data figures have the number of deaths per million people for the UK and Mexico at 596.07 and 104.79, respectively.

Countries included in the survey were: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, UK, USA, Vietnam.
