On March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) called COVID-19 a pandemic. Millions of cases and deaths have been reported globally. To limit the increase of spreading by COVID-19, prevention strategies were performed to protect people and healthcare workers. The right to health for medical workers is a crucial factor for both control of the outbreak and continuing to provide necessary care to people with COVID-19. Thus, as part of the right to health, governments should create conditions that ensure to medical staff adequate protection even if in an emergency.
