Review: Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis of China’s prevention and control strategy for the COVID-19 epidemic

This report used a SWOT analysis to determine how we should improve our ability to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic in China. The lessons might be applied elsewhere.

A group of experts used the Strengths (S), Weaknesses (W), Opportunities (O) and Threats (T) (SWOT) analysis method to perform a systematic analysis of the COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control strategy in China. They came out with strength-opportunity (SO), weakness-opportunity (WO), strength-threat (ST), and weakness-threat (WT) strategies for the prevention and control of the COVID-19.

They determined the highest-priority policies are:

  • reshaping the emergency system (SO1)
  • adding health emergency departments to universities and other institutions (WO2)
  • adjusting the economic structure and strengthening international and domestic linkages (ST2)
  • strengthening public intervention in responding to public health emergencies (WT1)
