Abstract

As courts throughout the country decide coronavirus-related liability issues, judges can look to claims that arose out of three recent health crises: the H1N1 pandemic, the Ebola crisis, and the Zika crisis. This Article makes a novel contribution to this emerging legal literature on the coronavirus pandemic by analyzing the cases that rose out of these crises and how these past decisions may apply to fact patterns that arise out of the current coronavirus pandemic.
