“Now Is Not The Time For Parties!”

The Construction Of Public Health, Problematic Youth And Moral Panic
Zusammenfassung

To be intelligible, public health emergencies (PHEs) rely on narratives that are mediated within discourses. Responses to PHEs also draw on such narratives. During the initial phase of the COVID-19 crisis in Germany, one powerful narrative that guided response measures revolved around young people engaging in what were labeled “Corona Parties”. Based on a qualitative content analysis of German newspaper reports from March 2020, our findings strongly suggest that the Corona Parties narrative amounted to a moral panic. This drew on established narratives about problematic youth and ultimately contributed to the implementation of a contact ban and further restrictions in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
