Since the beginning of the pandemic caused by Covid-19, the emotions of humanity have evolved abruptly, mainly for policies adopted by the governments of countries. These policies, since they have a high impact on people’s health, need feedback on people’s emotional perception and their connections with entities directly related to emotions, to have relevant information for decision making. Given the global social isolation, emotions have been expressed with higher magnitude in comments on social networks, generating a large amount of data that is a source for various investigations. The objective of this work is to design and adapt an interactive visualization tool called CovidStream, for monitoring the evolution of emotions associated with Covid-19 in Peru, for which Visual Analytics, Deep learning, and Sentiment Analysis techniques are combined. This visualization tool allows showing the evolution of the emotions associated with the Covid-19 and its relationships with three entities: persons, places, and organizations, which have an impact on emotions, all in a temporal space dimension. For the visualization of entities and emotions, Peruvian tweets extracted between January and July 2020 were used, all of them with the hashtag #Covid-19. For the classification of emotions, a recurrent neural network model with LSTM architecture was implemented, taking as training and test data the one proposed by SemEval-2018 Task1, corresponding to Spanish tweets labeled with emotions: anger, fear, joy, and sadness.
