Abstract:The response to contain the threat arising from covid-19 pandemic required taking certain drastic measures and steps up to the declaration of a state of health emergency to slow down or stop the spread of the pandemic in order to protect the health of the population in congo. in the meantime, the public authorities did not limit themselves to the existing institutions to deal with the pandemic. thus, several other specialized institutions were created to intervene in various sectors of the response to the coronavirus. the main ones identified in this study were 'la cellule de riposte contre le covid 19 en rdc; la task force présidentielle; le secrétariat technique; le fonds national de solidarité contre le coronavirus et le comité multisectoriel de riposte (cmr-covid-19)'. almost all of these institutions are directly attached to the presidency of the republic and are accountable directly to the president of the republic, and their leaders at the highest level are for the majority healthcare personnel, who moreover are less attentive to questions of the rule of law. this article criticizes the risk of institutional duplication caused by this institutional inflation, which does not guarantee the promotion and protection of the values and principles of the rule of law in congo and the solution would lie in strictly limiting the creation of new institutions while relying on existing institutions, upon the public authorities to simply ensure that they are well equipped and give them clear and specific missions.
