The Paradox of Preparation
Chris Hayes on Twitter: "A doctor I spoke to today called this the “paradox of preparation” and it’s the key dynamic in all this. The only way to get ahead of the curve is to take actions that *at the time* seem like overreactions, eg: Japan closing all schools for a month with very few confirmed cases".

See also the Millennium Bug, and what's currently (failing) to happen with climate change. This is a great concept, and good to have a name for it.
