“Housing has become the frontline defense against the coronavirus,” says Leilani Farha. She is the Global Director of movement “The Shift” fighting for the Right2Housing. In her video she talks about the negative effects of the pandemic on housing and reminds the states on their human rights obligations. She calls the governments to declare an end to all forced evictions of informal settlements and encampments. They should also ensure that the people have access to an adequate, affordable and proximate supply of water, toilets, showers, sanitation services, disinfectants and masks. Health services should be made available to anyone who contracts the virus, including through informal or traditional health providers.
