As of January 2020, Covid19 has led to actual and figurative infections—the latter acting on an emotional and behavioral level and being mostly nurtured by data and their (mis-)interpretation, further spread by media and social networks. Both types of infections influence one another interactively. The events have revealed the severe impact of data illustration on subjective and collective perceptions, predominantly leading to counterproductive anxiety, mistrust, and stagnation.
