Abstract

Covid-19 in El Salvador has created a serious tension between public health and social control. Recent interventions may reduce disease transmission, but they come with significant costs for social cohesion. Measures introduced to contain the spread of the virus have also left politically and economically marginalised groups vulnerable to human rights violations, write Amaral Arévalo (Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro) and Clare Wenham (LSE Health Policy).
