The official data on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest a geometric growth rate.
Which explains why more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic.
So how bad might things get?
It’s worth noting at this point that the data we do have, mostly from the Chinese government, is still scant and suspect. Many think the situation is China is worse than is being reported — potentially much worse.
Frustratingly, the Western press seems bent on downplaying the coronavirus threat, many trying to convince us that the standard flu is more dangerous. Which is NOT true, at least in terms of survivability.
So, we must continue to educate ourselves as best we can.
