No governing body covers scaremongering for the media so it therefore is impossible to report it. As we saw at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak the media jumped all over it, so much so it led to all the panic buying, and generally scaring members of the public to the point where some acted like the end of the world is on its way. The economic effect it had was massive too, throwing the market all over the place. If it was completely honest and delicate delivery of news, this could all be avoided, but all the media care about is the best chance they have of gaining an extra viewer. 

There is no accountability for the media at all on the matter, and it needs to change. We can all change it. Either the governing bodies need to take scaremongering reports in and deal with it themselves, or the government needs to step in and deal with it. The media as a whole are uncontrolled, and think they are above everyone and can do whatever they please. Lets change that for a better future.
