(TELESUR) – Unemployment and poverty push Hondurans to risk travelling despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are looking for whatever we can find. We are all poor people,” a 27-year-old electrical engineer said, adding that “I could not get a job for almost four years.”
Yesterday afternoon, at least 1,000 people gathered in San Pedro Sula’s central bus station. Gradually, in small groups, they began their journey to Corinto, a town on the border with Guatemala.
Last week, the social networks reproduced calls to form a new caravan that will leave on October 4 from San Pedro Sula. However, some Hondurans decided to leave earlier.
“Upon reaching a highway, many of the members of the caravan got on trucks and other vehicles whose drivers agreed to transport them,” news agency EFE reported.
