The Government Confidence and Challenges in Managing Covid-19: The Case of Burundi


The handling of covid-19 in the world, and in Burundi in particular, requires early and appropriate proactive measures in response to the rate of spread. In this paper, we analyze two key factors: the confidence of the government in the management of covid-19 and the degree of compliance with the measures undertaken by the government to handle it. A statistical classification of the variables considered with principal component analysis is also analyzed in order to identify similarities and differences in the behavior of the Burundian population with respect to the covid-19 pandemic.
