• The EU, the United Kingdom and Israel are the only actors to increase the number of mentions, which is also reflected in the ranking position. France and NATO are also up from the previous month, but not enough to avoid being outclassed. Russia is relatively constant, both in terms of the number of mentions and in terms of ranking. All other measured actors record decreases in mentions.
  • The top of the mentions and their impact is dominated by the EU, which continues to share the podium with the US and Germany. Basically, these actors remain the ones with the highest visibility.
  • Compared to the previous month, the hierarchy is changing: at the top, the EU is ahead of the US and Germany; in the middle of the ranking Great Britain surpasses France; at the bottom of the ranking Israel and NATO exchange seats.
  • There are more mentions and a higher impact in the online media, as compared to the social networks. The exception is Israel, which records a number of mentions on social media slightly higher than in the online media. However, the impact of online media is greater than the impact of social media.
  • All measured items have mentions in the context of the coronavirus crisis. However, in addition to a number of particular issues, we note some other subjects reflected in online media and on social networks in Romania, in association with the states and institutional actors considered: Brexit, the political situation in Belarus or the “Navalny case”.
