Bangladesh must put human rights at the centre of its COVID-19 response strategies
Human rights must be at the centre of all prevention, preparedness, containment and treatment efforts in response to COVID-19. As the total number of confirmed cases crosses 17,000 and 269 deaths, the measures adopted in recent weeks have fallen short of respecting, protecting and fulfilling the human rights of people infected by the virus, at risk of infection, or part of the wider population. International co-operation and assistance is required to ensure that the Bangladesh government can meet its health needs in response to COVID-19, consistent with human rights law and standards.
