Abstract
The current situation with the new coronavirus disease that modern humanity is experiencing is unprecedented. It brought many changes to various spheres of life. First of all, this concerns the development of medicine, chemistry, information technology, management, and organization of social processes. However, the sharp spread of the disease gave impetus to the legal regulation of public relations. Criminal legislation is no exception. The article analyzes the shortcomings and gaps in the general part of the criminal law’s branch caused by the pandemic. The latter is considered as a source of danger to objects of criminal law protection. The most common cases of causing harm to objects of criminal law protection are analyzed. The authors gave a brief description of the changes in the criminal law of some states associated with the spread of the disease. The purpose of the article is to identify the shortcomings of the penal relations’ legal regulation in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to develop proposals for their elimination.
