The ongoing covid pandemic affected every country but some countries have withstanded comparatively to others.we have different dimensions for analyzing the issue,but i want to know does the form of govt(unitary or federal) have any effect on this pandemic.
Well it's too soon to comment on other countries individual govt responses and draw a comparison. A Country comparison can be done.
If you compare USA and India,
USA - Democrats are more not toeing the line of Trump. They are taking more radical measures than republicans.
India - The states have risen up to the occasion. One also needs to see, that Health is a state subject. Had they waited for Central Govt to dole out everything, the situation would have spiraled out of hand EVEN MORE.
Even the legislative and regulatory responses are worth noting. Maharashtra passed the Maharashtra COVID-19 Regulations, 2020 on 14 March to combat the coronavirus pandemic. The regulation directed all government and private hospitals to provide separate corners and screening processes for identifying cases.
What we have at central level are guidelines, it is the states who have to implement the larger policies.
