Bu çalışmada New York, Londra ve İstanbul kent yönetimlerinin Covid-19 küresel salgınına karşı verdiği mücadele ele alınacaktır. New York, Londra ve İstanbul örnekelerinin seçilmesinde bu şehirlerde görülen vaka sayılarının ülke genelindeki vakaların öncüsü olmaları öne çıkmıştır. Yine bu kent yönetimlerinin ekonomik ve siyasal anlamdaki kapasiteleri de salgın ile mücadele açısından önemli bir boyuta sahiptir. Bu nitelikler göz önüne alındığında salgın ile mücadele kapasitesine sahip olan bu kent yönetimlerinin karşılaştırılması anlamlı bulunmuştur. Çalışmada şehirlerin aldıkları tedbirler ve vatandaşlarına sundukları hizmetlerin karşılaştırmalı olarak incelenmesi ve öneriler getirilmesi amaçlanmaktadır. Çalışma kapsamında öncelikli olarak sağlık, hastalık ve küresel salgın ile ilgili kavramsal açıklamalar yapılmış ve ardından farklı ülkelerdeki metropol kent yönetimlerinin uygulamalarına değinilmiştir. Çalışmada yöntem olarak literatür taraması ile ulusal ve uluslararası kurum ve kuruluşlar tarafından hazırlanan raporlardan yararlanılmıştır. Öte yandan ele alınan kent yönetimlerinin salgınla mücadele kamuoyu ile paylaştığı resmi belgeler ve web siteleri analiz edilmiştir. Çalışma neticesinde kentlerin aldığı önlemler sağlık, ekonomi ve sosyal olarak sınıflandırılmıştır.
