Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
I agree with your point of view. People are not self aware. Huge amount of panic is created without much cause. The consequences of this unnecessary and unimportant hue and cry is pitiful. The situation is getting worser and worser. Most of the cases is due to the panic created by unaware people.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Even this challenging situation would ease
It is altogether a different matter when we are being troubled by our own kids to provide certain tips in relation to preposition, adjectives, punctuations and showing our blank faces in such situations would prove to be embracing. Let us avoid such awkward situation and pay a little attention to update our knowledge in such studies which fulfil their demands. In fact, life is itself very interesting if we explore the different avenues in the areas of studies.
But we should start updating our knowledge in all the fields to some extent. A commerce student should have some knowledge about the sciences. Then only they can appreciate the importance of other subjects. One should understand the seriousness of the situation even though he has no knowledge about that particular issue.
If the weather report says that there will be a cyclone, even though we don't now cyclones will happen and what is the theory behind, we should take proper care so that we will not be a victim for this cyclone. Same is the case with this virus. Many people are dying and our governments are advising us to be careful. One should understand the gravity and one should be careful. No scientific knowledge is required but a little general awareness is required.
However the media and social media made overkill and spread a lot of negative news that made/make people really scary and forget the core issue.
The one common deficiency I find with even well educated people is wearing the mask wrongly. Many keep the mask below their nose. Wearing mask covering nose and mouth is definitely uncomfortable. So i is a natural behaviour to bring down the mask to breath easily. That is where we have to learn to control temptation and understand the significance of wearing mask correctly.
This needs more attention from media and people. People have similar attitude with respect to helmets also. They wear it as if it is necessary to show the Police.
Science education is not needed. Just common sense and cent percent compliance is what is needed.
Knowledge is power.
