Author | Eduardo BravoResilience is a term used in psychology to refer to a person’s capacity to overcome traumatic situations such as the death of a loved one, a sentimental break-up, a serious medical process or a disaster. Although the concept is applied to individuals, it can also be applied to human communities subjected to traumatic situations such as wars or a pandemics.Given the nature of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the measures adopted by the different governments have focused mainly on medical issues to eradicate the disease and economic issues to alleviate the effects on the industrial fabric, thus enabling the rapid recovery once we get over the pandemic. Given the urgency of the situation, the emotional aspects of the conjuncture have not been able to be addressed which will, undoubtedly, have an impact on this area for various reasons. From depressive processes caused by the confinement, to the consequences of not being able to go through the grieving process for the deceased due to health restrictions.According to experts, the resilience of society will depend on the trust that governors manage to transmit and the sense of community they are able to generate. Accordingly, apart from clear and transparent information, institutions have also coined various slogans to make people aware of the importance of remaining united. From “Este virus lo paramos unidos” (We will stop this virus together) by the Spanish government, to the “Aiutiamoci l’un con l’altro.Insieme ce la facciamo” (Let’s help one another. Together we will get through this) by the Italian government, or the hashtags “#ArgentinaUnida (Argentina United). #CuidarteEsCuidarnos” (Taking care of yourself is taking care of all of use) by the President of Argentina, Alberto Fernández.
