The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread rapidly across the globe, and yet media coverage of the pandemic has decreased since the initial flurry of attention received during the beginning of the crisis in early 2020. Despite this decrease, public attention to the COVID-19 pandemic remains high, relative to the public’s attention to other issues, and appears to have largely been supplanted and displaced rather than combined and connected with the attention paid to climate change and other societal challenges. Connections between COVID-19 and climate change, among many intersectional challenges, are varied and complex, and merit further attention in the public sphere.
