Growth Factor of Novel Coronavirus Daily Deaths

Growth factor is the factor by which a quantity multiplies itself over time. The formula used is every day's new deaths / new deaths on the previous day. For example, a quantity growing by 7% every period (in this case daily) has a growth factor of 1.07.

A growth factor above 1 indicates an increase, whereas one between 0 and 1 it is a sign of decline, with the quantity eventually becoming zero.

A growth factor below 1 (or above 1 but trending downward) is a positive sign, whereas a growth factor constantly above 1 is the sign of exponential growth.
