ABSTRACT

Comparative Analysis of Policy Approaches to COVID-19 Around the World, with Recommendations for U.S. Lawmakers   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "Since COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] became a global pandemic in March 2020, countries around the world have taken various approaches to contain the proliferation of the virus. Three Heritage Foundation analysts examine the approaches of 10 countries with differing levels of economic freedom. These countries have taken vastly different approaches with varying degrees of success. This research finds that full lockdowns, such as those implemented in the United States and Italy, are not as effective as the more targeted approaches taken in other countries, such as South Korea and Iceland. The authors conclude their analysis with a number of recommendations for lawmakers in the United States."
