Thank you Trump!

As coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the globe, each country hopes that it has the ability to slow its growth in their own country.

As of today, the United States falls in last place with regard to limiting COVID-19 growth according to the number of confirmed cases. According to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, the number of confirmed cases in the United States grew at a faster rate than any other country in the world yesterday. Below, I dive into how these numbers are skewed by country population and the number of coronavirus tests conducted.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases rose from 7,783 on Wednesday to 13,677 yesterday. The growth of 5,894 new confirmed cases in just one day equates to a 76% increase in cases in just a 24-hour period.

I sometimes take for granted an understanding of exponential growth and its impact upon why this disease MUST BE addressed swiftly and by methods that many will not appreciate.
Below is a graphic demonstration of the exponential growth of this disease.

Trump was briefed in Jan. and Feb. by national security experts about the potential of this to turn into a pandemic. Trump called it a hoax multiple times because he was more concerned about the effect the truth would have on his re-election campaign than the effect it would have on the American people. That was criminal. But, Hillary’s emails............
