Is There Hysteria around Covid-19? Part Two of Two

Part Two

We need to question whether governments, media, scientists and society have contributed to a public hysteria around Covid-19.

This hysteria ignores global deaths from other infectious diseases including hepatitis, tuberculosis, pneumonia, HIV/Aids, influenza and malaria. For example, between 1.5 to 2 million people die from TB every year.

Countless numbers of people with cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, influenza and many other serious illnesses find themselves marginalised from urgent hospital treatment.

Over two billion people worldwide suffer serious underlying health issues, often resulting in an early death. Over 5 million children die in the world before their 5th birthday.

The obsession with Covid-19 contributes to further suffering, sickness and death worldwide of those with other health problems.

This is a global crisis in the mind-set and in health.

A definition of hysteria. An uncontrollable outburst of fear or panic among a group of people that overshadows everything else.



  • Tuberculosis doesn’t threaten people with political power, covid19 does.

    The story of covid is the story of a battle of interests between the old (people above 60 who are at higher risk and justly afraid of the virus) and the young (who are at a very low risk and shouldn’t be afraid). And the old use their political power and control of the media and government to spread panic and force limitations on the young.
