Abstract

COVID-19 Pandemic has already triggered a variety of psychological problems including fear, depression, anxiety, and suicidal attempts. This study aimed to investigate Turkish immigrants' psychological conditions and top concerns in Germany during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Demographics and current psychological conditions of participants were collected and analysed by means of a structured survey. A questionnaire was completed by 170 Turkish immigrants in Munich, Germany. The results demonstrated that Turkish immigrants with low income and education level as well as an unemployment status were worried more during the Pandemic. Moreover, the risk of elderly people getting infected by COVID-19 was one of the top concerns of participants. Therefore, main concerns of participants in our study were the deterioration of their economic situation and the possibility of older adults getting infected by COVID-19.
