Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic


October 23, 2021

In addition to the transmission and spread of many people around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact politically, culturally and socially.

Political Influence

A significant number of Chinese Communist Party (CPC) municipal officials have been released from their jobs after the epidemic outbreak in the central region was perceived as inadequate for their quarantine duties. Meanwhile, some experts see this as a move to divert people's dissatisfaction caused by the coronavirus pandemic away from President Xi Jinping. Some commentators noted that public outcry over the disease would be a rare protest against the CCP. In addition, resistance to the mainland in Hong Kong has intensified because of fears of migration from mainland China to Hong Kong. Taiwan has also expressed concerns about its inclusion in travel sanctions against the People's Republic of China due to its unstable political status and "one regime recognition". On the other hand, a number of countries are using the epidemic as an opportunity to show their support for China, a prime example of which is Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen's special visit to China. Further, Australia's Treasury Department has been unable to maintain its commitment to maintaining existing fiscal reserves due to the impact of the coronavirus on the economy. Many countries have used the coronavirus pandemic to show support for China, such as when Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen made a special visit to China to show Cambodia's support for China. He was criticized by people for his inexperienced and insignificant way of responding to it. He has been charged with making misleading or false claims, failing to provide adequate information, and downplaying the importance of the pandemic. Trump has also been criticized for closing the U.S. National Security Council's World Health Security Department, which was established to prepare the government for a potential pandemic. After coming out without a mask on, he did some gimmicks, and eventually he was diagnosed with the coronavirus on October 2, 2020. The Islamic Republic of Iran government is heavily affected by the virus, such as at least 20 people (about 10%) of the Iranian legislature being infected. At least 15 current or former high-ranking government officials, including the vice president, have also been infected. The advisors of Ali Kamenei and Mohammad Javad Zarif have died of Corona. The spread of the virus raises questions about the continuity of the government in the future.

Impact on Sovereignty

Geographic economists and national risk experts have argued for a potential erosion of political and economic sovereignty that could affect some already fragile states such as Italy. Edward Rootwak described it as "the virus of truth." Also, M. Nicholas Pirzli, director of the World Pensions Committee (WPC) and member of the Advisory Board of the World Bank's Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), referred to this as a "great financial crisis". And he also said that "with financial and geopolitical dysfunction, national economies will suffer as a result, and their political sovereignty itself may be seriously eroded."

Citizenship and Democracy

Iran, Jordan, Morocco, Oman and Yemen have banned the printing and distribution of newspapers. On 30 March, the Hungarian Parliament granted Prime Minister Viktor Orban sovereignty indefinitely.
