The COVID-19 pandemic has had wide- spread effects globally. As with most coun- tries, the leaders of Samoa are learning as they go and are promptly finding solutions to issues that arise – a commendable feat. However, it has not been smooth sailing for Samoa’s COVID-19 response. Samoa has been widely criticised for its response, its alleged violation of certain fundamen- tal human rights and how it has created a ‘constitutional crisis’ during a time of emergency. Although this narrative is one of criticism, it is made in the context of the Samoan Government prioritising the health and safety of its people above all else.
