Critical Observations re COVID-19 and Lockdowns in Canada, Germany, and the United States
“The Coronoia Blogbook: Critical Observations re COVID-19 and Lockdowns in Canada, Germany, and the United States” is a collection of posts originally published on this blog between March and November 2020. The posts were lightly edited and rearranged into three thematic groups: Part I puts “COVID-19 in Context”, Part II illustrates “Mapping the Pandemic”, and Part III discusses “What the Data Do Not Tell Us”.
Each of the 14 chapters critically examines the corona crisis with reference to the current discourse at the time of writing. Some chapters include analyses of government data and contain original maps and graphs. The book is framed by a short preface with background on the author’s motivation and a brief conclusion with thoughts about the reasons for the ongoing “coronoia” and how it may end. The text is written from a critical perspective to make room for dissenting opinions in the public debate of the pandemic and the government, media, and individual responses to it.
The 98-page paperback is printed in colour and available at https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08NRP13QP. An eBook will be offered shortly, although the original posts are also available here for on-screen reading.
