ABSTRACT

Federalism and the COVID-19 Crisis: A Pakistani Perspective   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], the disease associated with the new coronavirus, are spreading quickly in Pakistan. The nation shares borders with two global epicenters of the pandemic - Iran and China. Pakistan reacted with alarm when the first case was confirmed on 26 February. Quarantine facilities were established in each of the subnational units and Sindh became the first province to shut down all educational institutions on 1 March. In addition to the health challenges faced by all countries, Pakistan is facing an acute challenge in maintaining the livelihood of daily subsistence workers in the informal economy given that a lockdown has now been imposed by federal government until the end of April."
