The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Germany’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Observer Research Foundation (ORF) - Special Report, 2020, 108

Germany’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has earned it almost all-round approval. This special report argues that there is indeed much that German policy has gotten right. But it is also important to keep an eye on the limitations and failings, for which Germany – and other countries that seek to emulate it – might end up paying a very dear price. In contrast, a timely correction of some aspects of German policy could help pre-empt both human and economic damage. The analysis offers some suggestions on what this remedial action could be.
