Virus cases in the U.S. multiplied from 3,000 to 100,000 in just two weeks..?

Given the rate of progression.. doesn't that mean there will be over 1 million cases within 1 week.. or sooner? if not, where is my math wrong..

    Your math is based on a projection of what has already happened in the US:

    and it

    assumes

    several things that most people are not willing to think about

    1 The spread will not slow down in the US as it did in China or Korea

    2 Social distancing will have little or no effect on the spread in the long run

    Of course as Rocky Balboa said in Rocky 2

    "Maybe we can do better...""

      It's already slowing down thanks to their practicing  precautionary measures, much more than you say, CCP troll. China is dead. so they won't be practicing anything. Korea is not part of China and you don't represent them, troll.

    The Americans, like Russia and Japan, have become very stable. Unlike communist countries news of America can freely be exchanged. New York, California and Washington State account for over 98% of all COVID-19 cases in America. All states of America are now individually sealed shut closed and quarantined of all traffic and travel coming or going of people and material goods. The Americans are really fighting this as are the Russians, Japanese, Mexicans and Canadians. China is gone, of course. The worst cases are now the UK and Spain both where it is raging unlike anything in history. NHS is only beginning and can only do so much.

    No you are right - it is an exponential growth curve, as anyone who contracts it (theoretically) infects two to three others, and then they each do the same.
