I’ve created this Coronavirus calculator to illustrate how fast the Coronavirus spreads if you do not implement extreme measures very quickly. You will see that 1 infection today, even at the low growth rate, turns into 1 million by mid-August.
To see the how fast the virus spreads, simply enter the current # of Coronavirus cases in your area today to see how many potential infections will exist in the coming days, weeks, and months. (Parentheses represent hospitalization and mortality rates.)
|Date||Low Growth Rate||Medium Growth Rate||High Growth Rate||Enter the current number of active Coronavirus cases above to populate this table.|
- Low growth rate: The Coronavirus doubles every 7 days.
- Medium growth rate: The Coronavirus doubles every 5 days.
- High growth rate: The Coronavirus doubles every 3 days.
- Hospitalization and mortality rates are based on the latest data of 10% and 1% respectively.
