The impact of the pandemic on moral panics in society
The relevance of studying the impact of a pandemic on society is determined not only by medical problems, but also by social. The main purpose of the paper is to study the consequences of the pandemic in modern society with its information, cognitive-innovative, and hyperreal security. The article examines the phenomenon of the pandemic, its impact as a global threat and danger in micro-, meso-, and macrosocial structures and organizations, in state and international institutions. The pandemic becomes both a process of social freezing in the broadest sense (in the sense of any connection between people), and in the social, political, economic, and cultural context. The purpose of the study is to identify the most important factors affecting the psychological and somatic health of a person in the conditions of COVID-19. The paper presents a review of Russian and foreign studies of the psychological impact of the epidemic. The problem of the social impact of the pandemic as a global and massive threat to human relations in the information and digital world is a new phenomenon in the sociocultural space, as fear multiplies and repeats, and panic is intensified by simulations and fantasies, sometimes even more than real processes.
