    (ANSAmed)- "The COVID-19 crisis has worsened the feeling of despair among Tunisian youth and dispelled their fear of death, thus increasing their urge for irregular migration," Ahmed Labyedh, an expert in social and psychological issues, said Thursday in a statement to TAP.

    Their hopes and dreams for a better future in their country, which is living in an economic crisis complicated by the Covid-19 crisis, have diminished, he explained.

    According to him, the irregular migration journeys, which take place in conditions that double the possibility of coronavirus infection, have not deterred these young people from embarking on this adventure and exposing themselves to the dangers of disease, drowning and suffering in order to live in other countries.

    He indicated that these young people see the concern of authorities and governments around the world about the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to realise their plans in this regard without being noticed.
