Abstract

The objective of this study is to identify the impact generated by the media on Venezuelan migrant women who live in Lima, Peru, in the context of the COVID-19, and to know how it relates to the emotional state, and to the compliance with health recommendations. This retrospective correlational study collected information from 385 of these migrant women, through a virtual survey conducted during the first weeks (March 19-April 30, 2020) of the mandatory social isolation measures taken by the Peruvian government. The main results show that there is an association between media effects and emotional impact; none of the analyzed media provided reassuring information, but disturbing information. This study concludes that the media sharpen the feelings of concern, fear, terror and anger of Venezuelan migrant women.
