Interesting framing, too: "..your world". Who benefits from the fear-mongering?

Any site that posts data of absolute numbers of cases and deaths without also publishing rates per capita is disseminating bullshit.

Fourthed!
As to who is benefiting, one assumes the MSM in terms of ratings--which
drives ad revenue. No doubt their desire to sway the election plays a part.

Another U-turn from the World Heath Organization: they're now saying that those with Covid-19 but
asymptomatic are highly unlikely to spread the disease. Brief video here:

'“New Corona Cases”: A Phrase That’s Tells us Very Little, if Anything, About the Actual Levels of Danger We Face':

"..So why is the press still obsessively talking about “cases” as if there were a linear correlation between them and threat to the health of the vast majority of people?

I see only two possible explanations. The first is herd stupidity, that is, the deeply ingrained tendency of everyone with a keyboard and a twitter feed to—for all their often histrionic attempts to portray themselves as “fiercely independent”—studiously ape the central presumptions of the corporate media’s view of reality and confine their institutional critiques to the very peripheral realms of nuance and style.

The second possibility is flat-out institutional corruption, that is, that people in very high places have told their servants in the media to keep the panic, and the enhanced control of the population it enables, going as long as possible.."

Individuality and Camus' THE PLAGUE:

- In the beginning, the townspeople of Oran are still caught up in their own lives—their loves, their pursuits of leisure, their past and future, their unshakeable sense of themselves as the center of the universe. However, as the plague takes over everything, they lose that sense of uniqueness and individuality. They are just like everyone else; they have no distinguishing characteristics. Their present is the same, their pasts all superfluous, their futures all suspended. Within this new collectivity there is some comfort, but there is also an acute loss of what makes being alive so wonderful.

I go with your second possibility. The neologism 'fear porn' is apposite.
