The paper examines the mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the extent to which it had affected the international order, particularly where it had exposed the contradictions, injustices, and fragility of the order. The sacrifices needed to be made by the great powers were not made during the pandemic for the international system to maintain its balance and provide the support needed by the global south, as many of the weaker states found it difficult to survive, while elitism on the part of the global north had its day. The paper, through the document and thematic analysis, found that the marketization of the international system has impacted the ethics of life and death, deciding who is to live and who is to die, when and even how? Another key finding is the depiction by COVID-19 of human hierarchies that the liberal international system fails to consider, thus challenging the claim that sacrifices are made in support of the system by the developed world. In the context of the foregoing, the paper recommends that the current international order should be restructured with a view to addressing the lopsidedness, gaps, and inequalities to make the world balanced and more just, in accordance with the liberal norms and values
