Abstract or Introduction
The aim of this term paper is to give an overview on the media discourse of the Corona pandemic in order to understand the national media discourse and to understand how an international crisis is presented in the national media. Furthermore, the paper aims to find out how the reporting on a health crisis develops over time and can be characterized.
