Political unrest or violence

All the other categories that are being tracked by this Monitor may, in one or other form, contribute to the likelihood of social unrest or violence. Such incidents, if they occur, would have a negative impact on the ability of the state, and other social institutions, to contain the spread of the virus and to care for its victims. In those countries that have already had pre-existing social tensions or violent conflict, the spread of the virus, and the measures taken to contain it, could further exacerbate tensions and/or lead to an increase in violence.
