The results on sub-parameters were tabulated to identify best practices, along with suggestions for improvements in the fight against Covid-19 preparedness, an exhaustive 3 R framework — Restraint, Response, Reconstruct — was designed. More than 30 parameters were defined under these three categories, covering measures by state governments in various domains like screening of suspects, source and contact tracing, health, social distancing, economy revival, containment zone management, surveillance, communication and awareness, use of technology, emergency response, etc.

Based on importance priority was set for these parameters, ensuring that parameters from each category were included in every priority bracket.

For benchmarking, the measures taken by states against these parameters were identified using secondary research methods from the sources like state health department websites, Covid-19 dashboards, social media platforms, press releases, etc. In addition to this, qualitative inputs received from the respective state governments were used to define performance against each defined parameter.

The states’ achievements were analysed based on feedback and secondary research on identified parameters namely Restraint, Response, Reconstruct.

Secondary research were supported by interviews and discussions with state level officials.
