|Abstract Text||To curtail the spread of the novel Coronavirus countries implemented several different countermeasures. This thesis analyzes the relationship between the severity of COVID-19 measures and their economical and financial impact. It is found that containment measures lead to poorer stock market recovery after it crashed at the beginning of the pandemic. The prevailing country-specific circumstances mainly determine the bond yields, whereas income support is the only measure which has a milder effect. For macroeconomic factors, only a few minor correlations are found, but the initial country-specific circumstance is usually the decisive factor.|
