The Sober Math Everyone Must Understand About the Pandemic
I came across this article that I believe is pretty much spot on regarding the potential spread of COVID-19 and why isolation is so critical.

I apologize if it's already been posted, I did a search and couldn't find anything.


It takes about 10 minutes to read (+/- depending on how quickly you read), and the author has stated:

"Anyone, including the media, is free to use this post, any related content, in all or in part, for any purpose, in any format, with no attribution required. Please direct message me if you have other ideas for how to raise awareness."


So feel free to share it with family/friends/coworkers/etc.

This is because our brains tend to think linearly as opposed to logarithmically. It’s the same reason many people don’t save for retirement or understand compound interest.

Was it Dr Fauci who said recently, "If you think you're over-reacting, you are probably doing the right thing"?
