The outbreak of Covid19 has proved to be the global cataclysm which has also taken away the fundamental rights such as the right to movement, right to health, right to decent burial guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The right to movement has also guaranteed under Article 13(1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. While the Supreme Court in its judgment Pt. Parmanand Katara v. Union of India held that it is the obligation of State to protect the life under Article 21 of the Constitution of India and the right to life should be given the paramount importance. In this case, it was also held that the person has the right to decent burial and fair treatment.
The basic element to ensure the health of the public includes health care services, social distancing measures, and other facilities to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But the current scenario is sweeping human rights. The novel coronavirus has originated from Wuhan, China. The first patient was identified on Dec1, 2019. The government of China should ensure the rights of people while dealing with this pandemic. The government has taken steps in mid-January which is the negligence of the state. People are detained for humor mongering, media have not allowed reporting as well as many are not able to access medical facilities. Dozens of people have been detained by police for posting on social media regarding COVID-19. Some doctors were forced to sign documents that they won't post anything regarding the virus as it has been treated as an illegal activity. The Government authorities have curtailed the right to speech and expression of people as they have censored posts and articles in China.
