The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the strengths and weaknesses of the various federal governments. The model of cooperative federalism has proved beneficial in several countries, especially in the initial stages of the pandemic. The German model of administrative cooperative federalism has been immensely successful in the battle against the pandemic. However, the Indian cooperative federalism has failed miserably even though it looked promising during the first wave of the pandemic. This paper examines the federal provisions of the Constitutions of the USA, Germany and India and draws a comparative analysis of the implementation of such provisions and legislations as to how the various models of cooperative federalism fared against the unprecedented Covid-19 Pandemic.
