Etymology: [NL.: cf. F. hystrie. See Hysteric.]
Hysteria, in its colloquial use, describes unmanageable emotional excesses. People who are "hysterical" often lose self-control due to an overwhelming fear that may be caused by events in one's past that involved some sort of severe conflict. The fear can be centered on a body part, or most commonly, on an imagined problem with that body part. Disease is a common complaint; see also Body dysmorphic disorder and Hypochondriasis. Generally, modern medical professionals have given up the use of "hysteria" as a diagnostic category, replacing it with more precisely defined categories such as somatization disorder. In 1980, the American Psychiatric Association officially changed the diagnosis of "hysterical neurosis, conversion type" to "conversion disorder".
U.S. National Library of Medicine
Historical term for a chronic, but fluctuating, disorder beginning in early life and characterized by recurrent and multiple somatic complaints not apparently due to physical illness. This diagnosis is not used in contemporary practice.

MY RESEARCH CONTINUES.
All the hysteria that's been going on through the media and through certain other channels is just that it's hysteria and propaganda, investing in policing will only continue to lock folks up but not give them the nurturing that they have never had.
I think as is often the case, it's a lot of hysteria over very little.
This wave of panic and hysteria is bigger than the virus itself.
