Background: Concern for the development of actions against COVID-19 has continued to
grow since February 2020. Government responses remain a crucial part of preventing virus
transmission through policy formulation and strengthening national capacity.

Methods: This study has used quantitative analysis, using secondary data from 177 countries.
The variables consist of Global Health Security (GHS) category and COVID-19 pandemic.
An analysis of the appropriateness of the government’s policy response in dealing with the
COVID-19 pandemic was carried out by comparing the two variables.
Results: The study indicated a significant relationship between global health security category
and pandemic score (P < 0.01). There were 37 countries out of 177 (20.9%) categorized as
under-reaction and least-reaction.
Conclusion: Pandemic COVID-19 score, rated based on doubling time, is directly significant
with the health security category. The government should improve its responsiveness and
preparation to improve national capacity during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
