This study aimed to (a) analyze the forms of government response in facing and dealing with the impacts caused by Covid-19, and (b) and analyzing the forms of community participation in the world to deal with effects of Covid-19. This research, which uses descriptive qualitative methods, collects data by searching online for various data sources (online media, journals, and scientific reports). From the research conducted, it was found that responsive governments tend to be able to control Covid-19.
