Abstract

As of October 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic is still raging around the world and people’s lifestyles have also been changed. COVID-19 can spread through minute droplets, which makes it easy to transmit (especially the Delta variant). For most of 2020, vaccines were not available and the most effective way is to control the spread of the virus was social distancing and quarantine. Social distancing is very important to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and population density becomes a crucial factor. Another way to deal with this coronavirus pandemic is vaccination. Wealthy countries, which have more healthcare expenditure, begin to develop vaccines in 2020 or invest in pharmaceutical companies to secure the supply of vaccines. Healthcare expenditures are closely related to a country’s GDP. This research studies the impact of GDP and population density on the spread and control of COVID-19.
