Qatar was ranked as the world’s third safest country in 2021, according to recent data released by Global Finance magazine on Wednesday, 6 July. The top-performing countries are ranked based mainly on how they effectively managed and prevented COVID-19 outbreaks.

Compared to previous editions, to present a more rounded analysis of the world's safest nations, the ranking was based on the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, in addition to the main safety index factors which cover natural disasters with crime, terrorism, and war.

Each of these factors was based on 2020 reports that were done in 2021. In order to make sure the data is relevant to current experiences, the COVID-19 scores were derived from data as of May 30, 2021.

The top-ranking countries are diverse geographically and are spread amongst Europe and Asia. Of the top 20 out of 134 countries, nine of them are located in Europe and four of those are Northern European. The remaining 11 out of 20 are primarily countries in the Middle East or Southeast/East Asia.

This year’s No.1 safest country is Iceland, followed by the UAE.
