Abstract

This project investigated issues pertaining to COVID-19 related communications by different social actors, such as governments, news media, health authorities, experts, business organizations, and their impact on the general public’s attitudes and behaviours. It sheds some light into the news media’s role during pandemics, thus exploring the extent by which news media contributed to specific understandings of the COVID-19 pandemic by their journalistic choices of issues, tone, and crisis narratives. This project is comparative in nature, including data on public perceptions across six countries (Australia, Finland, Italy, South Korea, Sweden, and USA) and news media analyses of two countries’ main news outlets (Finland and Sweden).
