In the beginning of 2020, a new type of coronavirus pneumonia broke out in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. What deserves our attention is that there is an increasing tendency of vicarious traumatization caused by Social Media During the Pneumonia. The emphasis of this study lies in the research of the media’s role in promoting the formation of vicarious traumatization during the outbreak pneumonia, and the impact of vicarious traumatization on human psychology. Our goal has been to provide ways to alleviate “mediated” vicarious traumatization in the pneumonia. We conducted research based on psychological theories and Journalism and Communication investigation. Through analysis, we found that “mediated” vicarious traumatization may have a strong and persistent negative effect on the contact’s psychology, which requires great attention and timely suppression. In addition, this article puts forward expectations for future quantitative research on vicarious traumatization and the development space of new media.
