The introduction of a lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic does not violate the European Convention on Human Rights. Such a decision accepted ESPC.
“The quarantine was applied to everyone in the state. In addition, a person could leave the house if necessary and was not deprived of social contacts, ”the court’s summary says.
According to the position of the ECHR, the degree of restrictions during the quarantine was not strong enough to call this epidemiological regime a deprivation of liberty. The decision was taken five months after the complaint was filed.
The ECHR acknowledged that the COVID-19 pandemic continues and could have serious consequences for the whole world, therefore, called the current situation unpredictable.
