The book’s scope is wide, going from discussing historical responses to pandemics to codified human rights such as the right to health, water, information, and environment. The book also covers potential negative outcomes from the pandemic with regards to human rights, such as issues with freedom of expression and privacy.

The book is of interest to people who want to learn more about COVID-19 in a human rights context; as well as those interested in current issues of global governance, public health, and economic inequality.
