Abstract/Summary

COVID-19 has resulted in a new global geographies of death ranging from cellular to global scales. These geographies are uneven, reflecting existing inequalities and failures of governance. In addition to death and bereavement, the pandemic has generated varied forms of loss and consolation, negative and positive affective atmospheres, whereby emotions are mobilised and politicised. Understanding these emotional-affective topographies, including ‘emotional-viral-loads’, is vital to wellbeing, resilience and unfolding policy interventions locally and globally.
