Some 40 million people have been infected by the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide so far, resulting in over 1.1 million deaths. Apart from creating a severe public health crisis, the pandemic has also caused serious social and economic disruptions. Government capacity and leadership in crisis management is under major test in different countries and territories, and performance varies. Where does Hong Kong stand compared to others? Have government strategies, policy priorities and remedial measures been on the right track? What problems and deficiencies have been exposed? What lessons can be learned?
