Panicdemic (panic + pandemic)

"Panicdemic” (panic + pandemic) became a popular word during the swine influenza on 2009 and the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak. A “panicdemic” describes a pandemic (real or imagined) that creates mass fear and panic.

“Having a swine flu panic-demic? don’t worry. follow its spread online” was posted on Twitter by Unlimited Magazine on April 26, 2009. “Always amazed at media coverage on world health issues. Now swine flu—pandemic or PANICdemic? You decide” was posted on Twitter by Martha Young on April 27, 2009, and the “panicdemic” term was used by others on the same day. “Panicdemic” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on May 7, 2009, and again on February 26, 2020.


Wikipedia: Swine influenza
Swine influenza is an infection caused by any one of several types of swine influenza viruses. Swine influenza virus (SIV) or swine-origin influenza virus (S-OIV) is any strain of the influenza family of viruses that is endemic in pigs. As of 2009, the known SIV strains include influenza C and the subtypes of influenza A known as H1N1, H1N2, H2N1, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3.

The swine flu was initially seen in the US in April 2009, where the strain of the particular virus was a mixture from 3 types of strains. Six of the genes are very similar to the H1N2 influenza virus that was found in pigs around 2000.

Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak is an ongoing global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China on 1 December 2019, spreading to every province-level administrative division of the country by 29 January 2020. On 30 January, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following an increase in the number of cases outside China.

‘China has averaged about 20 new cases for about the last 7 days or more. Today just 13. 86% have recovered already.
I am still not hearing this news on CBC, CNN.
In China, 4.0% have died and that may edge up to 4.1%.
China has reopened.  Apple, Starbucks reopened.”
