The new normal: FRANCE 24 reports from Peru to Libya


In our show "The New Normal", which examines the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, FRANCE 24 brings you four reports from our correspondents around the globe. 


Our reports on Covid-19:

  • In Peru, hospitals are overwhelmed and doctors don't have enough oxygen tanks for patients. Families of the sick have to bring their own, a desperate situation being exploited by suppliers who are hiking up prices. Francisco Zacarias has the story.


  • The war-torn country of Libya is also dealing with the coronavirus and the number of cases is rising each day. Hospitals are often shelled and doctors go months without pay. Muaz al-Sheikh reports from Tripoli.


  • In India, the country is easing lockdown in a bid to jump-start the economy, but the pandemic has not yet peaked and is only expected to do so in July. Several public health experts believe the reopening is ill-advised. Mandakini Gahlot and her team report from New Delhi.


  • And the United Kingdom remains impacted by the virus, but British people are slowly trying to restart their lives as non-essential shops re-open after almost three months of lockdown. Hervé Amoric and his team report from Manchester.
