Many countries have formulated corresponding policies to achieve SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities). However, almost all these studies focus only on the impact of a single indicator. Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, it has further tested whether cities implementing policies in accordance with the SDG11 is flexibly applying and analyzing the current status of the city to resist COVID-19’s damage to the city’s economy and resources. This paper makes a reasonable summary of the countries with severe COVID-19 disasters this time and uses positive theory and negative theory to prove the research theme. The difficulty of the research is that COVID-19 is a global emergency, thus the collection of secondary data needs to be analyzed in conjunction with reports and news.
