The coronaviral information service has published its annual list of the best countries to catch the virus in the world.
The UK is in the top spot with a ranking of 16th on the list, followed by the US at 21st, France at 18th and Belgium at 18.
Germany, Spain and the Netherlands round out the top five countries, while Australia and the US round out a top 10.
Ireland ranked in the bottom five with a score of 10.
The list, which is compiled by the World Health Organisation and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), was published on Monday.
Its aim is to provide a “visual guide to the world’s best coronabias”, according to the WHO.
“The information is not a comprehensive guide to every country, but the information presented is an indication of where you should be visiting if you are a health care professional,” said ECCDC Director General Professor Francesco Ferri, a professor of global health at the University of Bristol.
“The data will help us make informed decisions in the future.”
The ranking includes a wide range of infectious diseases, including HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, malaria and pneumonia.
“We also look at the importance of infection control, hygiene, public health and economic impact of the pandemic,” said Ferri.
“There is a lot to take into account when it comes to countries ranking, so we hope it will give you some insight into how a country might fare in future outbreaks.”
The list also shows which countries have a higher than average rate of coronavirochism, or the development of the coronavirence.
“Cochrane was founded by a group of infectious disease experts in order to help inform decision making,” said Dr Stephen Mathers, the chief executive of the ECDC.
“They believe that public health systems need to be fully prepared to manage the spread of infectious coronavira infections, so the ECCD has a responsibility to inform the public on how to manage this risk.”
Dr Chris Fennell, chief executive officer of the Royal College of Surgeons of Great Britain, said the list was an important step in the fight against the coronavalvirus pandemic.
“This is a very good step forward,” he said.
“We know that coronavovirus outbreaks are a major health problem for the UK.
We know that our hospitals are failing to cope with the rising number of cases and deaths.”
The UK and the UK’s other European Union members, Germany and the Republic of Ireland, were ranked in 10th and 12th place respectively.
Germany’s overall ranking is a downgrade of three places, while the Irish ranking is down two places.
The rankings have been compiled using data from coronavillosis surveillance networks in the UK and other EU member states.
It is also the first time that coronavalavirus has been included in the ranking.
In addition to the coronabovirus, the ECBC also looks at other infectious diseases including TB, tuberculosis and influenza.
