An international human rights watchdog, Amnesty International, has claimed in its report 2020/2021 The State of the World’s Human Rights, that Zimbabwe killed at least 10 people during the COVID-19-induced lockdown.
The report cites human rights violations across the world. Reads the report in part:
The authorities used COVID-19 regulations to justify severe restrictions on the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. They deployed security forces to abduct, assault and torture perceived critics, and opposition members and leaders. Police and security agents killed at least 10 people. Women were denied access to essential maternal health care, and violence against women and girls was widespread.
