Contagious fear (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

panic

'contagious fear' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for panic that I've seen before include "Frantic fright" , "Grass" , "Sudden alarm" , "Sudden overpowering fear" , "Take fright, lose the head" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
