Singapore has sentenced a man to death on the popular video chat app Zoom because of social distancing regulations to cope with the coronavirus, a move slammed by a human rights group as callous and inhumane. The 37-year-old man was given the sentence after being convicted of masterminding a drug trafficking operation. He took part in the virtual hearing from prison while his lawyer and the prosecutors joined in the call from other locations. Human Rights Watch said the death penalty was already cruel, and the use of Zoom to announce it made it worse. This is the first time a death sentence has been delivered remotely in Singapore.
