Literacy and technical-analytic comprehension in addressing pandemic are highly necessary to make an accurate decision in responding to the COVID-19. I assume that, besides political factors, the lack of exponential growth literacy also contributes to pandemic treatment slowness. The exponential growth has certain characteristics. It might look flat initially, but then, it will grow dramatically. Furthermore, the question about when the curve will culminate or flatten is determined by the speed and the effectivity of executed responses. Consequently, the policymakers and society will tend to be complacent and underestimate the initial spreading of the pandemic, before they realize that the number of cases start to rapidly increase. The velocity of the response is also important as the graph below shows. According to the model, a day difference in deciding to implement social distancing will result in seriously damaging effect, approximately 40%.
