Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the consequences of the pandemic for public communications, for traditional and new media, as well as the challenges quality journalism has to face. The infodemic of the pandemic raises issues, including that of journalistic literacy, which is key for the ability of the media to rationalize the social and political reality, as well as the socio-cultural and health reality after the crisis. The emphasis is on the emergence of the new scientific discipline – infodemiology, to which communication science is directly related and from which media studies are expected to receive another stimulus for their interdisciplinarity.
