Pandemic hypervulnerabilities: the protection of isolated and recently Contacted Indigenous Peoples

The paper aims to analyze the context of isolated and recently contacted indigenous people during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study is focused on the analysis of administrative and judicial practices of the Brazilian authorities, and the inter-American system, with bibliographic review support in light of the Ius Constitutionale Commune for Latin America (ICCAL). This group's protection and the challenges of obtaining prior and informed consent are a regional issue because Latin America has the largest number of isolated and recently contacted indigenous people in the world. They were submitted to an arbitrary prescription of chloroquine by the Brazilian government without due information, and their tribes lacked protection from people infected with the virus, confronting the IASHR parameters. Finally, regarding the vaccine, regional human rights standards were not observed for the protection of the human rights of isolated and recently contacted peoples.
