RAMON FERNANDEZ, Francisca. The right to life and health protection in the measures adopted in spain as a consequence of covi-19: A reflection on its opportunity. Estudios constitucionales [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.2, pp.51-86. ISSN 0718-5200.

This paper analyzes the measures adopted in Spain as a result of the state of alarm by COVID-19 and the right to life and health protection with a reflection on their timeliness. It starts from the regulation established in the regulatory body, as well as the most recent doctrine position to analyze the restrictions that have been established to certain rights and the measures that have been adopted to limit the activities of normal life, in order to protect the health of people in the situation of health crisis. The study will attend, especially, to various situations such as the case of vulnerable groups, and citizens, in order to determine the relationship between health protection and the right to life, as well as whether this has constituted or not a suspension of your constitutional rights.
