I agree that the seriousness of the pandemic is being hyped in the news media. I don’t really mind too much though. Compare global warming. The scientific community have been warning the world for decades, but the conservative language of the scientific community doesn’t motivate people. The more people restrict themselves voluntarily, the less the need for enforcement, so the media hype, unusually, has some advantages.
The social restrictions seem to be working, but the question is, how do we get out of this? If the restrictions are removed, presumably the infection rate will soar again. We still don’t know about immunity and reinfection, but more is being learned all the time.
Incidentally, the restrictions mean that fewer interesting events are being generated, so the news media are left with less to report about apart from the pandemic.
