You will compare an American megacity to an Asian megacity about how to respond to the pandemic. What are the differences between American megacities and Asian megacities regarding dealing with the epidemic? If they are different, what makes it different? Any comparisons will be acceptable. However, any criticism or compliment without evidence will not be suitable for your paper.
