Instituciones políticas y manejo de la pandemia: pruebas PCR masivas

Main Article Content

Resumen

Una rama de la literatura sobre economía política argumenta que las instituciones políticas son importantes en el manejo de desastres (hambrunas, pandemias, etc.) y, en particular, que los regímenes democráticos son más efectivos que los autoritarios. La masificación de las pruebas de SARS-CoV-2 es un caso que
pone a prueba esta hipótesis. La evidencia de 85 países indica que la relación entre democracia y pruebas no es lineal ni directa sino curvilínea, con bajos y altos niveles de democracia asociados a la masificación y niveles medios —anocracias— asociados con pocas pruebas.
