The policies for dealing with the Coronavirus Diseases (Covid 19) pandemic in Indonesia, Taiwan, and Vietnam are compared in this paper. By executing a total lockdown until September, the number of positive cases of COVID-19 in Vietnam and Taiwan was reduced, lowering the Covid-19 fatality rate. Meanwhile, Indonesia has never been accused of implementing a total lockdown. Taiwan and Vietnam have similar outcomes. During September, the addition of positive Covid 19 was documented seven times. This study is the outcome of examining the best and worst government policies and writing in research utilizing the literature technique. Using the library approach, this research will collect as much information as possible about Covid-19 from print and electronic media in Indonesia, Vietnam, and Taiwan, and it will examine the policies of the three governments. The study’s findings indicate that experience, the country’s political history, and leadership all play a role in developing measures to combat Covid-19. The policies can influence people’s habits in place. Community behavior and culture, on the other hand, can influence policy. A key point is the involvement of public health experts in public health emergencies.
