Legal Dimensions of Public Health with Special Reference to COVID-19 Pandemic in India

Md. Zafar Mahfooz Nomani, Rehana Parveen.

Abstract
The public health laws are passing through a process churning in the COVID-19 pandemic in India. The effectiveness of quarantine law under 160 years old Indian Penal Code, 1860, and 123 years old Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 proved short-lived euphoria in controlling horrendous COVID-19 pandemic. The nation-wide Lockdowns on the ground of Sections 6, 10, 38, and 72 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, provided significant assistance in dealing with formidable challenges of COVID-19. The execution of these laws revealed the safety and security of public health professionals and the delivery system to high vulnerability. Therefore, the President of India promulgated the Epidemic Diseases (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 declaring 'act of violence' cognizable and non-bailable with high deterrent value. The paper explores the range of normative choices in refurbishing the public health laws beyond the command and control approach evidenced in Epidemic Diseases (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020, to therapeutic perception public health and equity in India.

Key words: Public Health Law, Soft International Law, Health & Hazards, Violence & Damage, Preparedness & Response, Epidemic-Pandemic
