Insufficient Data

Lots of graphs out there of the rising growth of coronavirus cases. The thing is, those are graphs of the people who have been tested.  Here in the US, that number is pitifully low. I wonder what the graph would actually look like with complete data. Would it still be going up exponentially, or would it have topped out already with most of us exposed? With a virus that shows no symptoms in almost half of the population and few or none for two weeks in those who do get sick, combined with testing restricted to either people who are already really sick or are rich and famous, we have no idea.  Uncertainty feeds fear, fear feeds panic, panic creates toilet paper and egg shortages, not to mention stock market crashes and the shutdown of the economy. Get everyone tested already, so we can know exactly where we stand, and send out those damned checks so we have an economy left when this is over.
