Human Rights and Covid-19
Politics of the Coronavirus Pandemic
Graduate Institute Geneva - Global Health Centre "Like previous pandemics, Covid-19 has led to a broad range of human rights violations around the world, from censorship and the silencing of criticism to the excessive use of police force. Minority groups and migrants have found themselves particularly vulnerable to abuse, as well as to Covid-19-related stigma and violence.

Statement by Medicus Mundi International
73rd World Health Assembly devoted to the COVID-19 pandemic response
Medicus Mundi International (MMI) "In these difficult times, we welcome the fact that a World Health Assembly takes place. We also welcome the intense negotiation process on the COVID-19 resolution as a strong sign that Member States still want WHO to direct and coordinate the global response to COVID-19 and other international health problems, with the World Health Assembly as its decision-making body."
