About this project

Tweets with non-official references of the virus name (pneumonia & Wuhan virus) show lower and more negative sentiment scores in either Chinese or English context. The difference of sentiment scores inferred from some frequent hashtags are larger under tweets written in Simplified Chinese than in Traditional Chinese. Sentiments inferred from words appearing in the discussions of Taiwan’s relationship with WHO/WHA under the influence of the pandemic disease have higher scores in positive emotions than in negative ones.
