Governmental Strategies to Control COVID-19 in Pakistan and India: A Comparative Study
The current study has focused on the governance issues faced to policy implication and practical implications of the decided immediate precautionary measures. It was a qualitative comparative study of developing countries i.e. Pakistan and India as both countries have almost similar health facilities. The study has tested the managerial theory under the sociological theory of corporate governance. It was found that the government precautionary and recovery measures enhanced stress levels among the people. The people were less cooperative to follow the SOPs and favor following the restrictions during the lockdown. Both countries being developing also faced the travel ban to the other countries even after the same normality as in various western countries. The study concluded that the government could not fight and win the people's rigid belief about the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus and its spread. So, following the government policies was antagonistic to the people's perception and normality acceptance over the borderline. The study opens the platform for further studies to check the governance issues in other developing countries and compare firsthand data. The study will be helpful for the policymaker and law enforcement agencies to understand the flaws of implementing the rules over the laymen.
