← Back to: List of phobias
Pandemophobia is the fear of a pandemic occurring. A number people suffered that fear before this current obvious pandemic ensued. Sufferers would worry about if that were to occur, they would be afraid to get severely sick or die from it. They would also worry about going to places, encountering strangers, and their finances. Severe sufferers would not go out anywhere at all even when pandemic is not happening, including to their workplace, and would rely on somebody in the immediate family who works to get cash from them. The fear became true when coronavirus pandemic started late last year in China then spread around the world in the following months. The subordinate term of pandemophobia is coronophobia, the fear of coronavirus.
