LEGAL MEASURES IN FACING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC BETWEEN PROTECTING PEOPLE AND RESTRICTING PUBLIC ‎FREEDOMS

This study addresses the subject of evaluating the impact of the procedures and actions taken by ‎countries against the Corona epidemic on public liberties, for both individuals and groups, through ‎enacting regulating laws that aim at reducing the spread of this epidemic. The epidemic has caused ‎a rise in the number of deaths and caused hospitals to be overcrowded with infected people, which ‎proves that the international community is showing a kind of weakness in fighting the threat of the ‎Corona virus. As a result, many countries had to take several procedural measures to confront this ‎pandemic. Seeing that international conventions strive to protect human freedoms and have given ‎them the highest priority due to their close connection with human dignity, the same thing applies to ‎local legislation in most countries of the world. At the same time, it allows restricting some public ‎freedoms in the event of an exceptional emergency that threatens the security and safety of ‎citizens, such as epidemics and natural disasters, by adopting exceptional procedures and measures ‎by countries around the world. Through this research, we seek to highlight its aspects and effects on ‎the public freedoms of individuals. On one side, it appears that they came as preventive measures, ‎and they are a restriction of freedoms on the other side; at the same time, they have been used by ‎some regimes arbitrarily. ‎

Keywords: Legal Measures, Coronavirus Pandemic, Public Freedoms, Human Rights, Human Dignity, ‎Protection And Rrestriction.
