[Comment] Do not violate the International Health Regulations during the COVID-19 outbreak

20:20 EST 13 Feb 2020 | The Lancet

The International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR)1 govern how 196 countries and WHO collectively address the global spread of disease and avoid unnecessary interference with international traffic and trade. Article 43 of this legally binding instrument restricts the measures countries can implement when addressing public health risks to those measures that are supported by science, commensurate with the risks involved, and anchored in human rights.1 The intention of the IHR is that countries should not take needless measures that harm people or that disincentivise countries from reporting new risks to international public health authorities.
