Summary/Abstract: The criminal law is composed of the regulations which are meant to protect the fundamental social values of a society. Also, this branch of the law has the purpose to apply sanctions to crimes committed and to prevent the appearance of future cases. In regards to the current situation generated by the pandemic, the main social value which requires attention is the right for health protection, to be more precise the possibility of an individual to maintain its health without exposure to dangerous factors. As it is the case in every society, there are persons which are not able to understand the danger represented by a certain phenomenon, a similar case which we could refer to is the drug dealing and the illegal human trafficking. These two examples can be compared to the current global pandemic, since they present similarity in the proportion and frequency, at last, the virus being more harmful at this point.
