In Asia, government actions impact Nikkei COVID Recovery Index

Vaccine rollouts and case declines send Taiwan up 17 places while Laos drops 28

Taiwan is now in the 66th spot, according to index results as of July 7, compared to 83rd place last week, thanks to falling case numbers and accelerated vaccine rollouts.
