World Health Organization Database of COVID-19 Legislation Around the World

The World Health Organization (WHO) has launched the COVID-19 Law Lab in association with other major international organizations:
"The COVID-19 Law Lab is a database of laws that countries have implemented in response to the pandemic. It includes state of emergency declarations, quarantine measures, disease surveillance, legal measures relating to mask-wearing, social distancing, and access to medication and vaccines. The database will continue to grow as more countries and themes are added."
"It will also feature research on different legal frameworks for COVID-19. These analyses will focus on the human rights impacts of public health laws and help countries identify best practices to guide their immediate responses to COVID-19 and socioeconomic recovery efforts once the pandemic is under control."
There are legal documents from over 190 countries.

In addition to the WHO, the project involves the United Nations Development Programme, yhe UN Programme on HIV/AIDS and the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University.
