The new normal: FRANCE 24 reports from Mexico to Tunisia


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


Our reports:

Mexico has been extremely hard hit by Covid-19, with the loss of more than 65,000 lives. Schools have been impacted: some 40 percent of private schools may have to close for lack of funds, forcing parents to place their children in the underfunded public system. Mario Carbonell reports.

Meanwhile in Lebanon, one month after the devastating explosion in Beirut, people in the capital are concentrating on fixing their homes. The charity Windows for Beirut is helping them do so. Our correspondents Zeina Antonios and Leila Molana-Allen report.

In Mali, a coup d'état forced Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to resign as president last month. The coup followed months of protests in Bamako organised by one man: imam Mahmoud Dicko. Our reporters Nadia Massih, Alexandra Renard and Mohamed Farhat went to meet him.

Finally, in Tunisia, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on tourism, causing massive economic damage. But a group of volunteers want to promote a new type of eco-tourism by saving rare turtles. Lilia Blaise, Hamdi Tlili and Fadil Alireza report.
