This article analyzes the Colombian pandemic context during Covid-19 health emergency. Initially, we describe the different lockdown policies adopted by the main governments of Latin America and the Caribbean. Successively, we evidence the contradictions between the constitutional fundamental principles and the current health system. This situation reveals the inequitable national tax regime and the timid economic initiatives that the Government is taking to contain the emergency. Finally, we highlight the evident threats to the peace process given especially by the increase in the assassinations of social leaders and ex-combatants. This situation is accompanied by the growing of legal and illegal pressure that neo-extra-activist interest groups are perpetrating against indigenous and Afro-descendant communities.
