Abstract:

At the beginning of 2020, COVID-19 became globally known as a medical emergency. Two years later, we see that its implications reach far beyond the scope of the medical field. During this time, we have confronted sociopolitical dichotomies, we have questioned ideals such as democracy, and finally we have lost our trust in our systems of governance. Understanding the impact of COVID-19 at the individual, societal, and global levels bring us to the realisation that the government’s readiness and effectiveness during such turbulent times is equally important to the public’s responsiveness and participation to confront this global “enemy”. This is the time for all of us to reflect on our mistakes, re-evaluate our priorities, and make the necessary changes to move forward stronger and unified. This study identifies the role of government in overcoming adversity and fostering resilience amid the COVID-19 pandemic and provides some recommendations for transparency, collaboration, and transformation.
