U.S. Ranks First in the World in Health Security
With the Coronavirus pandemic affecting our nation and world, it was reassuring to come across this recent infographic from Visual Capitalist. The chart pulled data from the 2019 Global Health Security Index, which ranked 195 countries on health security. While they do point out that no country was truly prepared to manage a pandemic, they also show that healthcare systems around the world on average are fundamentally weak and were not prepared. However, the United States ranked first in the world for a number of indicators including; epidemiology workforce, bio-security. and emergency preparedness & response planning. Stay safe, healthy, calm and as always, have a Happy Friday!!
