Abstract: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province, and has since spread globally, resulting in the ongoing 2019â€“20 coronavirus pandemic. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include muscle pain, sputum production, diarrhoea, sore throat, loss of smell, and abdominal pain. While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some progress to viral pneumonia and multi-organ failure. As of 4 April 2020, more than 1,118,921 cases of have been reported in more than two hundred countries and territories, resulting in over 58,937 deaths. More than 226,769 people have recovered. Legal framework for this type of virus is poor. Many countries have law but it does not have any implementation.
Key words: Coronavirus, legal framework, international law
