Abstract
The Coronavirus pandemic, its consequences and the various governmental responses to it have had an undisputed impact on our lives, societies and economies during the first half of 2020. By analysing a selection of press conferences held by Swedish authorities during April of 2020 through the lens of Michel Foucault’s theories on the exercise of societal power and on the means and ends of government, which Foucault refers to as governmentality, this essay aims to offer a perspective on government policy and practices in response to the pandemic and on the ways in which its challenges has been characterised as an expression of the governmental management of populations.
