The Sars-Cov2 pandemic has demonstrated the strong link between health risk and perception of the disease for various reasons: because it is an event that is being faced for the first time and because the consequences of the disease are still completely unknown. The objective of the article is to give a voice to people who have experienced the disease. Following a qualitative approach, twenty in-depth interviews were conducted with people recovered from Sars- Cov2 living in southern Lazio, using the R-Text Mining Package software as an analysis tool. From the analysis of the interviews, conducted through text mining, word relationships and sentiment analysis, a series of particularly relevant areas and dimensions emerged in order to assess the impact that the disease has had on people's experiences, both on an individual and social level. Specifically, three main topics emerged: communication, fear and danger.
Keywords: Sars-Cov2; health risk; disease; institutional communication; health information; social fear.
