In late 2019, China began to experience the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Setting out the context of anti-COVID-19 pandemic, the research team at Lingnan University conducted research related to city governance in combatting the global health crisis. Based upon a survey examining how citizens in the Greater Bay Area (GBA) in South China reacted, this paper discusses the crisis management of city governments in the GBA when managing the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper also shows how GBA citizens compare city government performance when handling the emergence of crisis. The paper contributes to the debates on cities and governance, especially when citizens’ approving rate would have affected social cohesion and future development.
