Author(s): Elleuch Fadoi & Semi Boudabbous

Objective : We have studied the psychological and Eco-Social impact of the spread of the Coronavirus on the Tunisian family. So, Tunisia experienced, during the year 2021, a strong socio-economic transition impacted by the coronavirus pandemic Coronavirus. Indeed, from the beginning of the year, the situation of institutional blockage did not make it possible to face the various economic challenges, social and health issues faced by Tunisia.

Methods : We are studying a questionnaire posted on social networks assessing the initial impact of the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic and its consequences.

Results : We collected a questionnaire completed by parents. Both parents and children were impacted when the global Coronavirus pandemic began to spread in Tunisia. A psychological intervention is essential, in order to help them get out of this crisis, being the least impacted possible.

Conclusion: This situation was accompanied by a sharp rise in protests and social disputes which caused the slowing down or even the cessation of phosphate production in the Gafsa mining basin or oil extraction in the south, which had an immediate impact on the country's finances and caused the loss of certain markets.
