Civil war, foreign interference and Covid-19...

Mired in a fratricidal conflict, Libya is now the new playground of foreign powers.
The Covid-19 epidemic makes it even more difficult for journalists to have regular access to the field and their sources. In this context, how can we continue to inform while the internationalization of the conflict could lead to direct consequences in the region ?
How can we relate and share the complexity of this topic and make sure than our journalistic coverage is as objective as possible?
