In a study published in the DeGruyter journal Open Anthropological Research, Professor Martha Lincoln of San Francisco State University examined how public officials openly pushed for people to accept widespread illness and death from the virus by adopting a tone that suggested premature death was normal and the scale of death acceptable in the grander scheme of things.

She tracked remarks supporting the sacrifice of those who were more likely to die of COVID-19 because they were presumed to be elderly or suffer ‘underlying health conditions. That phrase was wielded to suggest that such people mattered less because they did something wrong or were sick.


"In the US, influential commentators & officials pushed the public to accept death & illness as a new normal during COVID-19 pandemic."
