COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The disease was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province, and has since spread globally, resulting in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic opened new avenues for anarchist organizing, in particular mutual aid, direct action via rent strikes, and prison uprisings. Anarchist literature about the pandemic also critiques how states use the crisis as an opportunity to expand and reproduce state power and develop new forms of authoritarian control. This section of The Anarchist Library documents and archives various anarchist and libertarian literature written about the COVID-19 pandemic.
