It is if all you say is that cases have increased. You are leaving out increases of tests, who is asymptomatic, who tested positive for antibodies, how many are hospitalized.
Just saying there is an increase is irresponsible, as it stokes fear and in some cases hysteria, depression, etc. Something like this needs as much information as possible, especially in a society that looks at the headline only.
Fear, hysteria. The usual talking points.
