Abstract

The main way to deal with COVID-19 is social distancing. As a result, the governments of different
countries imposed lockdowns. Bangladesh Government directed shutdown of offices and public transport
on 26th March, 2020 opening everything on limited scale from 31st May, 2020. Pakistan government
ordered lockdown in the middle of March, 2020 easing to restore economic activities on 10th August 2020.
The current cross-sectional study aims to look at how and what type of coping strategies were taken by
tax-paying male bankers in patriarchal countries of Bangladesh and Pakistan when they were faced with
lockdown at home due to COVID-19 with data collected by Coping Strategy Indicator. The men were seen
to have more emotion based coping due to a different sort of exposure which is unlike of men. This is the
first study to assess the effect of lockdown of COVID-19 on coping of highly paid tax-paying bankers in
Bangladesh and Pakistan.
