Public health and most economic activities have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This has caused a lot of difficulties for the public and the governance. A suitable solution that balances public health and economic activities is essential. In this paper, we provide a game-theoretic approach to find this balance, given a desired priority ratio between the two. We propose a Stackelberg game where Corona National Headquarters is the leader, and the people are the followers. We find an optimal solution to the proposed game for different color zones based on the number of patients in a given region. We also find the mixed Nash equilibria of the proposed game and explain the effects of different model parameters on the equilibria. We introduce the optimal mix strategies for each player to control the outbreak. We illustrate the performance of the proposed model for different color zones at different stages of the total deaths curve of the outbreak. Finally, we incorporate the possibility of having inaccurate decisions in the model for real world applications. The proposed strategy could also be used to control other possible respiratory pandemics that spread through close human contacts.
