Abstract
One of the mystifying questions on the subject of Covid-19 coronavirus widespread is; how seriously people are taking when it comes to highly contagious. We analysed different tonal behavior of people of Pakistan on online social media, Twitter. In our study we used Whissell Dictionary of Affective Language (WDAL) to categorize people’s emotions in terms of their activeness, passiveness, and imagination towards current outbreak. A total of 18,070 ―Corona", ―Covid-19‖, and ―Coronavirus‖ tweets were identified in the study time period. Organizations' response to Covid-19 on social media is more conscientious, active, and they are determined to take an appropriate action to stop this outbreak in any way possible. General users on other hand on Twitter have taken this outbreak nonserious and making fun of it. Although news accounts had posted nice messages together with unpleasant messages in our dataset, yet there is no positive attitude by general public towards taking serious steps to avoid Covid-19 spread. Our results suggest, general public is being ignorant with regard to spread of virus despite strict measures taken by the government and positive and negative framing provided by news or journalists.

Key words: Covid-19, Pakistan, Social media, Twitter
