iciHaiti - BINUH : Incidents around the Covid-19
Since the introduction of the curfew on 20 April, the Human Rights Unit of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) has observed at least four cases of ill-treatment by the police against persons in breach of the curfew.

Expressions of hostilities against the preparation of health centres to receive COVID-19 patients were reported, in Port au Prince (Hôpital Bernard Meus), in Gonaives (Hôpital La Providence), and in Les Nippes in Chalonas well as Jacmelin the former MINUSTAH base.

Another incident related to COVID-19 occurred in Terrier Rouge (North-East Department), where a coffin was left in the street when residents opposed the burial of an individual they thought could have died of COVID-19. A mob wielding machetes and rocks blocked the entrance of the cemetery withburning tires. The PNH intervened to calm the situation.
