The "stranger" and the "other" are very different intrapsychic and relational topics both in their sources and their developments. Particularly is examined what’s happen in migration when the foreign can suddenly become a "stranger" more then simply an "other". The perception of the migrants seems to waver between a complete otherness and a dis-torted double. As Abdelmalek Sayad said, migration has a "mirror function": both migrants and natives see in each other their own "strange parts", parts that they can’t recognize as theirs. All this is examined in the complex situation of the coronavirus pandemic, with its deep psychic and anthropological consequences due to the sudden alteration of the borderline be-tween the familiar/safe and the unfamiliar/dangerous with its anxiuos and uncanny effects that seem to transform any "other" in a "stranger".
Keywords: Stranger, other, pandemic, uncanny, migration, double-contagion
