In our regular format Frequently Asked Questions, we let different people speak about how they are personally affected by the impacts of the pandemic, or they analyze different consequences on society. Since this health crisis does not stop at borders, we also look at other parts of the world, including occasional interviews in English. We are now dedicating an own new broadcast series to this international perspective. For “Realities From Abroad – Corona Worldwide”, our editorial team asked friends and relatives as well as former interview partners worldwide a series of questions about how they perceive the current pandemic situation in their region and society, how they feel, what worries them and what gives them hope. These people recorded themselves with their smartphones and sent us these audio snippets in english language.
In this edition, you will hear Monasib from Bangladesh, Alejandro from Costa Rica and Katharina, currently living in Mexiko, answering questions about their current personal wellbeing on the one hand and the state of society and pancemic measures where they live on the other hand.
