Eswatini’s Social Policy Response to Covid-19
This report focuses on the measures adopted in Eswatini from March to September 2020 to mitigate the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic is viewed as a health crisis. Resultantly, many governments around the world are preoccupied with the adoption of measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. The implication of this is that measures aimed at mitigating the negative socio-economic impacts of the virus are relegated to the periphery, especially in poor countries that were already suffering (socially and economically) prior the advent of the pandemic.
