I'm sick of people who do not understand what exponential growth is calling this virus a "nothingburger". If you are judging the threat level of this virus by its current numbers then you are failing, because you are not factoring in its rapid growth.

On March 7, there were just over 100 daily COVID-19 deaths in the whole world. On March 27, there were over 3,100 daily COVID-19 deaths in the whole world. That's how fast it is exploding now. That's the power of exponential growth.

For reference, the flu averages about 1,780 daily deaths in a year, in the whole world.
(650,000 / 365).
