The latest pandemic has become a new challenge for the whole world, in which world leaders were forced to communicate in new conditions and amid disinformation and proliferation of fakes. They need to protect the population, defend their nations’ security, stop the pandemic and infodemic, and keep calm. They appeal to their nations’ beliefs, symbols, and traditions, and augment the number of public addresses and speeches, underscoring the need to be united and to accept restrictions, obey new rules, and adapt to the new world order. Basic state functions, such as external, political, and social security, have become evident.
