What is really happening, what is going on here.
 Quoting: psyoptics

You don't understand exponential functions. It's not how many are dying RIGHT NOW that is the major issue, the major issue is, without intervention, 500 deaths per day becomes 1000, 2000, 4000, 8000, 16,000 very quickly. Before the lockdown measures, cases and deaths were doubling every 3 days in the US. At nearly 5,000 deaths we would be at 20,000 total death in about a weeks time, 80,000 total dead a week after that and so on.

With lockdown measures, the spread of the disease seems to be slowing to a doubling time of 6 days. That's a significant slowdown in the realm of exponentials.
