Abstract: Using the quarterly and monthly data of ten representative cities in China from
December 2000 to June 2021, this thesis describes the impact of COVID-19 on the
urban economy, import and export, and quantifies the impact degree by panel data
regression analysis. To explore the relationship between the impact of the COVID-19
pandemic and urban categories, we distinguished different types of cities. The results
show that COVID-19 has the most profound impact on coastal towns, followed by
megacities. It is mainly due to the excessive dependence of coastal towns on import and
export trade. We also understand the lagging effect of the pandemic on the economy by
adding dummy variables representing the SARS pandemic. Facts have proved that
while formulating related policies, the government has to consider the lagging effects
of the impact of the pandemic on the economy
