Human Rights Violations in Fomosa, Argentina: consequences of abusive COVID-19 measures.
Since April 2020, provincial authorities in Fomosa (Argentina) have been taking abusive and unsanitary measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The compulsory accommodation of people in unhygienic and overcrowded quarantine centers has not only increased the spread of the virus but also undermined their fundamental rights. Under international law, non-absolute human rights can be restricted during a public health emergency like the corona crisis. However, this is only possible under a clear legal basis and complying with stipulated legal principles. Governments are obliged to take effective steps towards the prevention of the corona virus spread while protecting human rights and safeguarding them to the highest attainable standard of health.
