“Switzerland now occupies the #1 position as the safest region according to the present analysis, in large part due to a continuing decline in its rate of infection spread and mortality, and key factors that put it in a better position to maintain a healthy post-pandemic economy,” the report mentioned. 

The country also recently announced its plans to reopen its borders to all EU/EFTA states and the United Kingdom as of June 15. Moreover, last month it had already confirmed to fully reopen borders with Austria, Germany and France on the aforementioned date.
