Life is almost back to normal in Singapore, although some restrictions remain in place.

As several countries see a devastating resurgence in COVID-19 cases, a small Asian island has become the best place to weather the global pandemic.

Last week Singapore topped the Bloomberg Resilience Rankings for Covid, ahead of New Zealand, which had dominated the chart for months.

The list considers factors ranging from case numbers to freedom of movement.

Bloomberg cited Singapore’s efficient vaccination program, compared to the slow rollout in New Zealand, as the main reason for the change in position.
