Right to protection


I would like to know if Indian citizens have the right to protect themselves from harm. Example, COVID and a citizen does not wish to come out of his home. Since COVID infection is equal to death, what law suggests that a citizen has every right to protect himself from endemic conditions and stay back at home?

Life is not mere living but living in health. Health is not the absence of illness but a glowing vitality the feeling of wholeness with a capacity for continuous intellectual and spiritual growth. Physical, social, spiritual, and psychological well-being is intrinsically interwoven into the fabric of life. According to Indian philosophy, that which is born must die. Death is the only certain thing in life

According to Article 21:

“ Protection of Life and Personal Liberty: No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law. ”

The right to life is not just about the right to survive . It also entails being able to live a complete life of dignity and meaning .

The citizen have every right to stay back at home and during the times of COVID the goverment was itself advising the citizens to stay in their homes and not come out.

A citizen cannot be forced to come out in danger while he is safe in his home depending on the circumstances unless it is neccessary for law to do so.

For example, if a citizen is guilty of any offence then the state has every right to force him out of his home to face legal consequences.

The Indian Penal Code has been created to punish those gulity of crimes.
