Summary

2020 will be remembered by posterity as the year of COVID-19 crisis, which has spread around the entire world starting from China. In such a complex moment of world history, it seems difficult as an international lawyer to conceive possible alternatives to the current legal approach used to tackle issues of health, which, in my understanding, must incorporate considerations on both global health and the individual human right to health, along with the environment. Aggregated data on death rate, scientific information on how contagious the coronavirus is, and the discovery of vaccines are surrounded by an aura of incertitude, and have been the object of a wave of misinformation that this globalized world has fueled, increasing the (understandable) chaos. Yet, the advent of the 2020 pandemic has not come out of the blue.
